Nov 22, 2023 12:56 PM IST

The man who broke the world record is a circus performer and has been slacklining and juggling various objects for over 12 years.

A man from California, USA, broke the world record for the greatest distance travelled on a slackline while juggling knives. Edgar Yudkevich juggled not just one or two but a total of three knives to break the world record.

“The day that I attempted this record was on World Circus Day and there was a community gathering of circus artists in Coronado, California. Because I am constantly training as a circus artist, I regularly do feats that others don’t understand, but that I feel are quite safe performing,” Yudkevich told Guinness World Records.

After winning the world record, Edgar told GWR, “I felt like I’ve finally accomplished a bucket list item. It’s something to remember for many years.”

Yudkevich further shared that he would like to break his own record in the future and inspire others. “I will definitely attempt another record in the future just to push my limits and to inspire my circus friends,” said Edgar.

About slacklining

Slacklining is a sport where a flat rope is pulled taut between two anchor points, and a person walks on it, much like tightrope walking.
