Cambodia-Based Nigerian Footballer Breaks Guinness World Record For Balancing A Football On His Head While Walking

Cambodia-based footballer, Harrison Chinedu broke the official world record for balancing a football on the head while walking yesterday. Before yesterday’s feat, an Indian soldier Naib Singh held the world record for travelling the farthest distance balancing a football on the head after walking a total distance of 45.64km in his country in 2014. Singh beat the earlier record set by Bangladesh’s Abdul Halim, who travelled 15.2 Km balancing a football on his head at the Bangabandhu National Stadium in Dhaka on October 22, 2011, to enter the Guinness Book of World Records. However, yesterday, Chinedu, lived up to his pre-event boast to smash Singh’s record to etch his name into the Guinness Book of World Records. 
It was Dr. Rafiu Oladipo Sports Foundation that presented Chinedu with the platform to make the historic feat possible as he balanced a football on his head walking from the Redemption Camp on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway to the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos.

I’m grateful to Dr. Ladipo for making the dream a reality,” Chinedu said after the event yesterday. I’m proud to be a Nigerian, and I have made Nigerians proud by setting a new record,” gushed Chinedu at the National Stadium finish point of the walk race, ThisDay reports.
