Video: The Harlem Globetrotters Set 5 New World Records, Then Announce Another Lubbock Show
The world famous Harlem Globetrotters just announced their Fan Powered World Tour, and they're bringing the show to Lubbock, Texas. But first they went and set five new Guinness World Records because they can.
If you've never seen the Globetrotters live, you really need to. It's a great, family-fun show that everybody loves. You don't even have to like basketball that much -- I know I don't, and I still love Globetrotters shows.
They just announced their Fan Powered World Tour coming to Lubbock on March 13, 2019 at the United Supermarkets Arena. And in order to celebrate the tour, and Guinness World Record Day, the team set five new Guinness World Records titles – bringing the team's standing Guinness World Record count to 21.
According to the official press release:
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)"
