A Canadian runner unofficially broke a Guinness World Record for joggling — juggling while running — when he reached a distance of 6.2 miles in 34 minutes and 47 seconds.
Bergeron finished with a time of 34 minutes and 47 seconds, beating the current record of 36 minutes and 27 seconds.
Bergeron previously attempted the record in 2018 and finished with a time of 35 minutes and 36 seconds, but his run was disqualified on a technicality.
Bergeron said evidence from his most recent attempt is now being submitted to Guinness World Records for official recognition.
“I broke the record by 1:40 so it feels pretty good. Now, I just hope Guinness recognizes it because it’s on a certified track. I feel exhausted, my feet are hurting, but super happy,” he told SaltWire.
The runner previously broke the record for fastest half-marathon joggling three objects at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon in October 2018.
