An  Ohio High School Cheerleader named Marie Klein, is in the record books by doing 40 back handsprings across the football field, going almost 50 yards!

Marie is a Junior at Walsh Jesuit High School, and talk about flexible... holy cow, and she is super fast. The great thing about this too is that they had a nice crowd at the event, so she got a lot of applause for her effort. The previous record was 36, so looks like her record should be safe for a while.
