Lynchburg Woman Seeks World Record


Lynchburg, VA - A Lynchburg woman is determined she will qualify for a Guinness World Record in side-jumping, and nothing - not even being legally blind - will stop her.

For decades, Belcher's always wanted to be in the Guinness World Record book. In March, she got an idea to try side jumping after the jump rope world record didn't work out for her.

Belcher's been training hard and can now do 120 side-jumps in one minute. The record is 90. She's determined she'll win.

"I don't give up on something unless there's a really, really good reason and sore ankles aren't enough of a good reason," said Belcher.

Belcher had YMCA trainers time her. Now, she just has to prove it to the Guinness judges.
