A New York state athlete broke a Guinness world record this week, when he successfully pulled off a 64.13-inch standing jump. The previous record was 63.6 inches. According to the organization, 23-year-old Christopher Spell accomplished the feat on Sunday, July 28, after attempting the record multiple times. "When I finally made that jump, it felt so freeing," Spell tells local WKBW-TV. "I'm just very thankful for everybody that supported me. I had tons of support in Buffalo." Spell says his two previous attempts at the record were disqualified by Guinness because the boxes he was jumping onto were declared too soft.
