Nigerian sets record for distance walked with football on the head

22 Nov

Nigerian footballer Chinedu Harrison has
broken the Guiness World Record for the
farthest distance walked with a football
on the head, walking a distance of 48.040
kilometers with the ball never leaving his
head or touching the ground for a single
moment. The previous record was 45.64
kilometers, set by an Indian soldier Naib
Singh in 2014. The new record will
officially enter the Guiness Book of World
Records once it is ratified by the
organisation. Chinedu’s journey to setting
the new record began nearly 46
kilometers outside of Lagos. He walked
with the ball on his head through the
major Lagos/Ibadan expressway before
hitting the major streets of the
commercial city with crowds cheering him
on. He eventually reached his finish line
at the national stadium in Lagos after
almost ten hours of trekking.
