Auld, a professional unicyclist and a coach for athletic TV series Ninja Warrior, said he used his free time during the COVID-19 pandemic teaching himself how to combine his hobbies of unicycling and weight lifting.

The athlete said it took him about 6 weeks of practice before he was able to successfully set the record.
