Former footballer sets world record of ball bouncing

Updated at: 1330 PST, Sunday, March 15, 2009

TRINIDAD: A former Cuban footballer has set a new world record in bouncing football on his knees for about one-and-a-half hour.

The 42-year-old former footballer, Erick Hernández, already holds several records in difficult performances of ball handling; among them stand out the most bounces in one minute (319), over a hundred meter distance (17:83 seconds), the marathon (7:17 hours), and most ball over using the entire body (19:10 hours).

Now, Hernandez has broken his own record with a difference of over three minutes by bouncing the football on his knees for one hour, 28 minutes and six seconds.

He will send this record for registering into Ginneaues Book of World Records.

Hernandez has been playing football for Cuba’s National League from 1991 to 1994 after which he dedicated himself to keep him in touch with football and take control on this art.
