Highlights from the Harlem Globetrotters record attempts for Guinness World Records Day 2018

The world-famous basketball team the Harlem Globetrotters have broken five new titles in celebration of Guinness World Records Day (GWR Day).

The team has been making basketball history on GWR Day since 2013.

The Globetrotters made the attempts in Emerson, Georgia, USA, at their annual training camp.

Torch George, who was new to the team earlier this year, made history by becoming the first female Globetrotter to achieve a Guinness World Records title. She used her most famous move, the under leg tumble, to achieve the record for Most basketball under the leg tumbles in one minute (female) with an impressive 34.

Zeus McClurkin, who already holds lots of titles, claimed two new ones during the day. First he achieved the Most blindfolded basketball dunks in one minute, with 5.

He then went on to set a new record for the Most behind-the-back three pointers in one minute with 3.

Bull Bullard then scored a ridiculously impressive trick shot from across the court, achieving a brand-new record title for Farthest back somersault basketball shot.

The shot was made from a whopping 17.71 m (58 ft 1.25 in) - that's almost as long as two buses! 

Flying Globies

The day also saw the “Flying Globies” – the Globetrotters new trampoline dunk team – achieve the record for Most basketball under the leg slam dunks by a team using a trampoline in one minute, beating the record holders by just 1 basket, with 28 successful slam dunks.
