Mohammed Alsheikh from Palestine has earned himself the nickname "Spider-Boy", thanks to his incredible contortion skills.

The thirteen-year-old athlete recently broke the world record for the Most full body revolutions maintaining a chest stand in one minute during an attempt in Amman, Jordan.
  
 
The teenager ran around his extraordinarily-bendy body 38 times, smashing the previous record of 29.
 
A group of Mohammed’s family and friends also came along to cheer him on in the 60 second challenge.
 
Spider-Boy, who was born with a very flexible spine, has been a competing athlete for five years now.
 
In 2015 he entered Arab’s Got Talent and reached the final three contenders, but he dreams of going even further: “I have a wish and I hope to be a world champion in my sport,” he told Guinness World Records.
