A Chinese primary student set two new world records at an international rope skipping contest, racking up 110 skips in 30 seconds and 548 in 3 minutes.

Cen Xiaolin, a student from Qixing Primary School in China’s southern Guangzhou city, broke the world skipping records at the first World Inter-School Rope Skipping Championships in Dubai which ran from November 26 to 28.

Cen skipped 110 times in 30 seconds and 548 times in 3 minutes at the Nad Al Sheba Sports Arena.

The organiser said it was very hard to count the jumps manually at the side of the court, and the result was finally confirmed after watching the feat in slow motion.

According to the  Chinese broadcasters, Students from Qixing Primary School won 27 gold medals from a total of 29 categorie

“(You) have to sway (the rope) very very fast and keep your upper body steady,” said 11-year-old Cen in an interview

The next world championships are expected to take place in Sweden in July.
