Hand-Skating World Record

I’m riding out a wretched flu and strange news has been slow, but this hand-skating is amazing and worth a look. Enjoy. Mirko Hansen has a unique talent.

Hansen recently set a new world record.

… A German athlete set a Guinness World Record by skating 164 feet in 8.55 seconds using in-line skates he wore on his hands.

Mirko Hansen strapped a pair of K2 Mach 100 skates in-line skates to his hands and performed a rolling handstand for 164 feet in 8.55 seconds, earning him a spot in the 2019 Guinness Book of World Records.

Hansen achieved his no-feet feat in Bocholt, North Rhine-Westphalia.

“After I was part of some TV shows I want to make the next step and be part of the famous Guinness World Records book,” Hansen said.

Hansen said he started hand skating about four years ago and has only recently started doing it while upside-down.

“With a lot of tough training I learned more and more, for example to skate on one hand and to jump over a ramp” he said.
