Jumping for joy as bizarre world record set at West Ham’s London Stadium which just has to be seen to be believed in amazing video.
West Ham fans have got used to seeing records broken since David Moyes returned to the club in January 2020.
The Hammers staged that Premier League record comeback from 3-0 down against Tottenham with eight minutes to go.
Moyes led West Ham to their record Premier League points total last season too.
The Scot has been helping the east Londoners break and set all sorts of records and added a personal milestone to the list when he reached 1,000 games before the international break.
West Ham have been ending records too. Most notably ending Liverpool’s record of going unbeaten for seven months until the Hammers leapfrogged them in the table with a 3-2 win last time out.
It is fitting given the number of world records that were recorded in West Ham’s London Stadium in its former guise as the home of the memorable London 2012 Olympics.
Well now another record has been set at West Ham’s ground, after the US pogo stick star – yes apparently that’s a thing – known as Pogotyler smashed a Guinness world record by jumping over five London cabs outside the London Stadium.
To celebrate GWR Day, Pogotyler, real name Tyler Phillips, beat the record for ‘most consecutive cars jumped over on a pogostick’ by bouncing over five black London cabs outside West Ham’s ground.
Ironically it is the closest taxis have got to West Ham’s ground as fan group Hammers United continue to call on the club to provide a taxi rank outside the soon to be 62,500 capacity stadium.
According to The Guinness World Records website the “iconic Olympic Park in Stratford served as the perfect backdrop for this adrenaline-filled attempt”.
Standing at nearly 2m tall and 1.6m wide, the five electric London cabs made for challenging hurdles.
That wasn’t an issue for pro-pogoer Tyler, though, who bounced over the five cabs and jumped the last one with a stunning backflip.
The video of the world record below is quite breathtaking.
Tyler showed the aerial presence of West Ham stars Kurt Zouma and Tomas Soucek, the reactions of Lukasz Fabianski and Alphonse Areola, the core strength of Declan Rice and the skill and dexterity of Said Benrahma as he flew like pretty bubbles in the air and nearly reached the sky to make light work of the challenge.
With a whopping 220.7K followers on TikTok, he’s also the most followed pogoer on the platform.
“It took a long time to train for this record,” Tyler explained on the GWR website, adding that he never trained with more than one car before the record attempt.
Let’s hope this is the latest in a long line of records to be smashed at West Ham’s London Stadium.
