Angel Rice sets Guinness World Record
16-year-old cheerleader Angel Rice of Atlanta, Georgia sets a Guinness world record on the TODAY plaza for the most double full twists performed in one minute.
“I’m a little out of breath but not dizzy,” says Rice on her Today show appearance. During her interview, she explained that she had never done that many double fulls before in that short amount of time.
Rice also represents Team USA for Tumbling with USA Gymnastics, which is not currently an Olympic sport. “Hopefully they put my sport in the Olympics,” explains Rice.
Ten double full twists were needed to set the Guinness record with a full 720 degree twist. Angel Rice is known throughout the cheerleading world for her tumbling skills and as a cheerleader on The Stingray All Stars of Marietta, Ga. and the California All Stars.
