A 21-year-old Bangladeshi youth from Thakurgaon, Russel Islam, has made it to the Guinness Book of World Records for the most skips in 30 seconds -- and that too, on one leg.
Russel Islam, son of Bazlur Rahman of Sirjapara village in Sadar upazila, in fact, created the world record by jumping rope 145 times on one leg in half a minute.
Russel, a student of Shibganj Degree College, has been skipping since childhood. But he started practicing meticulously from 2017. And his dream came true this year.
In 2019, Russel applied for the Guinness Book of World Records challenging in two categories -- one in 30 seconds and another in one minute.
