Cheerleader sets Guinness record of 42 consecutive handsprings (VIDEO)

An Ohio cheerleader set a new Guinness record by completing 42 handsprings in-a-row this week. Cuyahoga Falls (Oh.) Walsh Jesuit High cheerleader Marie Klein completed the dizzying athletic endeavor during her school's game against Akron (Oh.) St Vincent-St. Mary School (LeBron's alma mater) to break the prior record of 36.

Klein’s feat spanned 70 yards — from one 15-yard line to the other — in approximately 30 seconds. Though the video below appears to show 40 handsprings, at least according to the count cheered out by the crowd on site, the school itself announced 42.

Either way, the  cheerleader's extreme feat is quite an accomplishment. I'm disoriented just watching the video.
