Video: Chennai Boy Sets World Record For Climbing Steps While Hula Hooping

Aadhav Sugumar holds a world record for hula hooping while climbing stairs.

Talent and skill have no age. Proving this to the world is Aadhav Sugumar, a child from Tamil Nadu. At a young age, Aadhav has a world record to his credit. The Chennai boy has broken the Guinness World Record for being the fastest person to climb 50 steps while hula hooping. While many of us may feel tired by just thinking of climbing a long flight of stairs, Aadhav managed to pull off the feat in all of 18.28 seconds.

According to a post on the official Instagram account of the Guinness World Records, he managed to swiftly climb the first 38 steps, and then made a quick run through a courtyard before climbing the next 12 steps. The entire episode was caught on camera and showed Aadhav pulling off the feat effortlessly. Along with the video, the caption read, “Fastest time to climb 50 stairs whilst hula hooping. 18.28 secs by Aadhav Sugumar.”

According to a blog by Guinness World Records, Aadhav set the record on April 10 this year. It further said that the young boy had been practising hula hooping for two years before “he decided to test his skills with a Guinness World Records title.”
