A Nigerian, Harrison Chinedu, has set a Guinness World Record for distance travelled on a bicycle with a football on the head. He pedalled a total distance of 103.6 km in the Lagos area – the commercial capital of Nigeria.
The former professional footballer started off his record runs in March, 2016 setting a new Guinness World Record for the farthest distance traveled while balancing a football on his head while walking.
His latest was achieved on November 20.
Last year, Chinedu, who played football in Cambodia, walked a distance of over 45. 64km with the ball on his head to break the Guinness World Record, which was set in 2014, by an Indian soldier Naib Subedar Azad Singh. Another Indian citizen who walked a distance of 49km recently has broken that record.
Before the November 20 feat, Harrison had told reporters. “My biggest motivation is that I believe in showcasing my God-given talent. I know I have the skill and I want to show the world what I can do.”
