The Early native, 17, performed the most consecutive handsprings for a male, landing 46 during a cheerleading competition on Saturday. The previous record was 44. The stadium holds the record for the most-attended basketball game (108,713 for the 2010 NBA All-Star Game) and once held the record for the world’s largest high-definition video display. “I was a little bit nervous, but that was only because my body wasn’t 100 percent,” said Tim, alluding to a knee injury. “Doing another record and being on the screen of the record TV was kind of special. I was looking forward to today, and I’m really happy to see where this is going to go.” “This” could be going in the next edition of the famous book. Guinness World Records 2014 Edition was released in September and includes the smallest roadworthy car and the largest drum kit, along with time-honored favorites such as longest fingernails and tallest man.
