A 14-year-old British gymnast broke the world record for the most forward rolls in one minute, the BBC reported.

Friends and coaches cheered on Ashley Wallis of Devon as he turned a dizzying 75 rolls in just 60 seconds at his gym. He breaks the previous record of 69 rolls in one minute, held by American Ivan Spizizen.

"I didn't really think of anything, I was just trying my hardest," Wallis told the BBC. Afterward, "my legs were aching and I was quite tired, dizzy."

Coach James Reddy said Wallis has "excellent spacial awareness" and has been training for six or seven years.
