WATCH: High school cheerleader does record 42 back handsprings

By Evan Hilbert | CBSSports.com

An Ohio high school student made her way into the Guinness Book of World Records last week after completing 42 consecutive handsprings.

Walsh Jesuit junior Marie Klein needed just 37 flips to break the record, but, too make sure she got extra dizzy, she topped out at a massively impressive 42.

"It was crazy," Klein told the school's website. "I loved the way the crowd reacted. My mom was crying. It didn't feel real at times as I did it. I almost passed out, but I kept going. I am real excited to have the record. Now I want to break my own record."

Klein completed the feat prior to Jesuit's football game with LeBron James' alma mater, St. Vincent-St. Mary.
