New World record!!
Chris Batts (Radio Hi 5 Stereo), a 62 year old multi world record holder, made history when he flipped a 85kg Bulldozer Tyre, barefoot 1001 (one thousand and one) times to set a new world record, and all in aid of Pediatric care Africa.
Once he reached 1000 flips in only 2 hours 23 minutes and with 37 minutes to spare, as he sat out to do this amazing world record in 3 hours, his hands was checked and it was decided that it is best to stop due to severe blisters on both his hands, but in typical Chris Batts spirit he flipped it one last time in front of a jubilant crowd of friends and supporters.
To put it in perspective, Chris had to displace over 85000kg, bend down 1001 times to pick up the tyre and he did all of this barefoot!!
“Chris”, we do not have the words to thank you for what you have done for Pediatric care Africa and we and the world is totally impressed with your remarkable achievement. If I am not mistaken Chris now holds 33 world records!!
