Boston student breaks record for 'joggling' speed

By Ben Hooper

May 11 (UPI) -- A Boston student with enthusiasm for both juggling and jogging combined his interests to break the Guinness World Record for "joggling."

Zach Prescott, who competes in track and cross county for Boston University, juggled three lacrosse balls while running a mile Tuesday with a time of 4 minutes, 43.2 seconds.

The current Guinness record for joggling a mile was set in 1986 by Kurt Swinson, who completed the task with a time of 4 minutes, 43.8 seconds.

Prescott said his feat at Boston University's Nickerson Field was actually his third attempt of the day, after twice dropping balls.

"I almost didn't try it a third time, I was getting really tired," Prescott told the Boston Globe.

Evidence of Prescott's run, including video footage, has been submitted to Guinness for official recognition.
