Nigerian Breaks Guinness Record By Cycling 100km With Ball On His Head

Harrison Chinedu, a footballer, cycled a total of 103.6 kilometers across Lagos without dropping the ball.

CNN says Chinedu may have broken the Guinness World Record for the farthest distance traveled with a football on the head.

If successful, he will not only break an existing record, he would also have created a new one, the news network reports.

It will take around 90 days for the Guinness World Record body to verify and confirm the results.

Chinedu, who played professional football in Cambodia, told CNN he discovered the skill during his 10-year professional football career.

He said he then read about the Guinness World Record and set out to do something extraordinary.

“I did it because I wish to share my God-given talent to the world and to encourage the young ones to do something that has never been done before,” he said in a phone interview from his home in Lagos.

According to Chinedu, the most challenging part of his trip was cycling on the Eko bridge, one of the three bridges connecting the Lagos mainland and Lagos Island. It sits over the Lagos lagoon and is 3.43 kilometers long.

Chinedu said with the help of policemen and Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) officers he was able to navigate through heavy traffic, bumps and potholes on the road.

London Mayor, Boris Johnson Launches New Cycle Superhighway But One Cyclist Is Clearly Not A Fan

It is Boris Johnson’s big dream to make cycling safer in the capital – a cycle superhighway which means bikes do not have to share the road with cars and lorries.

But one cyclist made his views of the London Mayor very clear this morning, raising his middle finger at him as they passed over Vauxhall Bridge.

Mr Johnson appeared oblivious to the insult though, raising a hand to wave to the unidentified man in a red and black cycling top. See another photo below. Just love this British guy tho, no one should make you act quiet when you feel other wise, lol. Another photo below…

Today Mr Johnson was opening cycle superhighway number 5 which creates a continuous two-way separated cycle lane for 1.4 kilometres from Kennington Oval to Pimlico.
