A young man gets a running start and proceeds to jump all the way across the width of a two-lane suburban street. While it may seem like the kid has superhuman powers, his long jump is well short of the world’s record of 29 ft, 2.5 in set by Bob Beamon in 1968.

14 students from Japan’s Fuji Municipal Harada elementary school worked together to set a new record for the most skips by a team over a single jump rope in 60 seconds, getting their feet over the spinning rope 225 times without a miss – or about one jump every 1/4 second.
