“Man claps his way into world record”
An Iowa man broke a Guinness World Record by clapping his hands 1,140 times in one minute.
Dalton Meyer, 20, of Davenport, said his interest in speed clapping began when he was in elementary school and saw a YouTube video of Kent French, who was once known as the fastest clapper in the world.
“It came naturally to me, it was like I didn’t even have to practice,” Meyer said. “I just knew how to do it.”
Meyer filmed his official attempt in both real-time and slow-motion, as well as recorded with the proper audio to ensure each of his 19-claps-per-second could be properly counted by Guinness World Records.
The record was attempted in March, but Meyer said he didn’t receive official word until Halloween.
