Manhattan, New York, United States / August 9, 2008

Bilal Asif combines yo-yo skills with balance skills en route to setting a new universal record for longest trapeze while standing on on one foot. The record began when the trapeze started, and ended when Asif lost his balance.

Asif set his record on August 8, 2008 at the International Yo-Yo Open in New York City[]. He used a YoYoFactory 401 SD yo-yo and a YoYoNation HighLightsstring. Witnesses were Talia Ledner and Dan Rollman.

    Indeed, it is deceptive. At our first world record appreciation society event, someone attempted to defeat this record but came up short. Think back to elementary school and remember how often the lead would get stuck in the sharpener and result in broken tips... But by all means, try to beat it.

  • That doesn't seem like that many...

  • I'm a teacher and I've been keeping in kids in at recess for years to sharpen pencils. I've seen thousands of pencils sharpened...but never have I seen 5 pencils sharpened so quickly. I am impressed.
