Man Born Without Legs Breaks World Record By Running On His Hands

The Olympics and Paralympics celebrated a host of incredible feats this summer, but another impressive athletic achievement took place earlier in the year, at an unassuming indoor sports track in Ohio.

It was there in February that Zion Clark broke a world record that’s yet to feature at a major sporting event, by walking 20 metres on his hands in less than five seconds.

By walking 20 metres in 4.78 seconds, Zion Clark, 23, set a new Guinness World Record (GWR).

He was born without legs and hails from Ohio. Clark had caudal regression syndrome, which is characterized by aberrant lower-body development in which the spine’s bones are frequently missing.

His infirmity, on the other hand, has never stopped him from pursuing his passion. He used to be a wrestler and was always interested in sports.

“What a great feeling to be a Guinness World Record Holder! Especially considering every school K-12 keeps a copy of this book,” Clark remarked while posting a video on Instagram about the organisation’s special record book.

‘He exploded in a burst of speed, smashing the record in a time of 4.78 seconds,’ according to the website of the record-keeping organization.
