Teen challenges recent back flip record

Posted: Updated:
GRANBURY, Texas -

Another North Texas teenager is taking a crack at the Guinness World Record for the most consecutive back handsprings.

Cody Welch, a freshman at the Crossland Ninth Grade Center in Granbury, tumbled his way down the football field just before the start of a football game between Granbury High School and Fort Worth's Tremble Tech High School.

His cheered on as he completed 44 back flips.

Welch is a member of the freshman cheerleading squad. He also competed at the national Junior Olympics in July, taking home a bronze medal for tumbling.

It's not clear if anyone from the Guinness Book of World Records was watching him but they were watching Miranda Ferguson back in early October.

Ferguson, a cheerleader from the Hockaday School in Dallas, set an official record with 35 continuous back handsprings.
