B. Sakthi (19) a third year engineering college student has entered the Guinness Book of Records for doing the ‘Most backward Body Skips’ in one minute. He made 46 body skips in this world record attempt - with both hands tied together with a rope - at Brookefields Mall on October 18. The record was approved about a month ago and the certificate reached him from London on Saturday.

“I got the record for one minute cleared earlier as I applied for it in the fast review mode,” he said. He hoped his attempt for backward skipping in 30 seconds would also find a place in the record book.

He had earlier entered Limca Book of Records and the Indian Book of Records for the same.
