(UPI) -- Once Mikayla Clark of Westlake High School in Georgia saw a video of the back handspring world record-holder, she decided she could beat it.
"I was looking at world records and I just happened to see the most consecutive back handsprings," Clark said.
"I clicked on the link and I was like, ‘Oh, she did 36,' and I said, 'I think I can beat that.'"
No big deal for 16-year-old Clark, a junior.
Clark broke the record with 44 consecutive back handsprings at the Westlake football team's homecoming game.
SHE DID IT!! Mikayla broke the Guinness World Record for consecutive back handsprings! We're so proud of you! #GoLions— Westlake High School (@westlakelions) October 19, 2013
"My senior year, I'm going to flip field goal to field goal and try to break my record," Clark said.
