FULTON COUNTY, GA (CNN) – An Atlanta-area high school cheerleader has a special title to add to her resume – world record holder!
In an amazing feat, cheerleader Mikayla Clark did a whopping 44 back handsprings in a row. The previous record is 36.
The Westlake High School junior has been working toward this goal since the beginning of the football season, according to her coach.
