    When Jorawar Singh was 13-years old, he suffered a slip disc because of his association with the heavy sport of discus throwing. In a bid to get back in shape after weeks of rest, Singh began skipping school, which led him to get hooked on rope jumping competitions.

    On Friday, Guinness World Records announced on its official blog that Jorawar Singh has achieved a record in most skips on roller/inline skates with 147 jumps in 30 seconds.

    Singh entered the Guinness list earlier in February this year, the blog noted.

    A video clip of the record holder has gone viral on social media, making people “trip” out of their minds.

    ​Back in 2016, Joravar flew to Portugal to compete in the World Jump Rope Championship, however, due to health issues he managed to secure the fourth position.  

    Joravar later began training to set a new Guinness World Record in rope jumping.
