Japanese Man Sets New Guinness Record For Spinning World’s Largest Hula Hoop

 

Can you hula hoop? Well I’m really bad at it. Just saying. I can get the hoop around me two or three times. So I’m trying to say, hula hooping is hard. Meanwhile Yamada is a professional and great at hula hooping.

Though Yamada ( the hula hoop specialist ), made it look easy, spinning such a large ring is not for the faint of heart. Instead of turning it using the torso like what you do when you have a normal hula hoop, a hula hoop this big must be spun first with the hands and then by running back and forth inside while it is moving. Keeping the hoop in the air and the keeping the hoop spinning is a challenging skill and requires perfect timing!

Yamada often demonstrates his skills at local schools,he is known for his unusual tricks. Despite his vast experience, the 37-year-old was nervous about taking on the world challenge and practiced every day until the big event. Yamada said, “I felt the pressure of achieving this Guinness World Records attempt in Japan on this special day. I had to set a new record with all the other attempts taking place worldwide. This attempt has constantly been on my mind for the last few months, and I was hoping for a good result, so I am pleased, but also just so relieved to be a new record holder!”

  Yamada succeeded to be the first man to spin such a large hula hoop. It was a great experience for him. I am amazed that he made hula hooping  a career for this long. I think that he must have practiced all the time because he did a great job!
