As the Harlem Globetrotters prepare to bring their new 2019 Fan Powered World Tour to the LJVM Coliseum in Winston-Salem on Saturday, March 23 and the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro on Sunday, March 24, the world famous team decided to celebrate Guinness World Record Day by setting five new Guinness World Records™ titles – bringing the team’s standing Guinness World Record count to 21.
The records are highlighted by an impressive somersault basketball shot made by one of the team’s biggest stars, Bull Bullard, at a staggering 58 feet, 1.25 inches away from the basketball hoop. The other records include the first-ever record set by one of the team’s female stars and another set by the Globetrotters’ trampoline-dunk team, the Flying Globies, and are listed below:
* Most basketball under the leg tumbles in one minute (female) – Torch George (32)
* Most blindfolded basketball slam dunks in one minute – Zeus McClurkin (5)
* Most behind the back three pointers in one minute – Zeus McClurkin (3)
* Most under the leg slam dunks by a team using a trampoline in one minute – Flying Globies (28)
