Setting a World Record

Garrett Aitken wants to set a world record for the Guinness World Records by bouncing on a space hopper! He said, “Basically I am going to be bouncing around the track on a space hopper for a long time. I’ve wanted a world record since I was a kid and read the Guinness World Record book, so I looked up records until I found one I thought I could do. It is definitely a weird one, but it is still a record.”

The greatest distance travelled on a space hopper in 24 hours is 16 km (9.94 miles) and was achieved by Martin Mienczakowski in Bristol, UK, on October 31, 2015. Martin is a stroke survivor and attempted the record to prove he could do it, and also to raise money for the Stroke Association. Martin achieved this distance in just 4 hours, 50 minutes, 33 seconds. The attempt took place at the Kip Keino Athletic Stadium. Garrett, a resident of the Antelope Valley, wants to use the iLEAD AV track to accomplish this goal and hopefully break the world record by bouncing on a space hopper. Good luck, Garrett!
