16-year-old cheerleader breaks world record

 
The Texas high school football and cheerleading scene is legendary for its intensity, but one cheerleader has become particularly legendary. Miranda Ferguson, 16, is a high school junior in Dallas, Texas. Last week, she broke the Guinness World Record for the greatest number of consecutive back handsprings during halftime at one of her school’s football games. She did back handsprings from one 15-yard line to the other and performed 35 total. Holy cow!

 

As she executed each move, hand-springing past a line of her teammates as the crowd counted along, Miranda knew making it to the finish line would be tough. But she made it—though she told a local Fox News affiliate reporter that she was a little worried she would fall before she made it to 35. She did slow down a bit towards the end, but break the record she did, and she couldn’t be more thrilled!

 

Watch the video of the accomplishment below and wish her a big congrats in the comments, cuties!
