Many people across the world have done bizarre things in eyeing the Guinness Book of World Records, but it is interesting how a 9-year-old boy has broken the record for the most amount of claps i.e. 1080 times in one minute. Guinness World Records said Seven Wade became interested in the hand-clapping record after seeing the previous record holder, Eli Bishop, on the record-keeping organization’s YouTube channel. Wade said he studied the former record-holder’s technique until he was able to best his record of 1,020 claps in one minute.

Wade’s father said, “Seven badly wanted to break the world record and began bursting into random clapping episodes every chance he could to make his point. Eventually we told him that if he really wanted us to take him seriously about making an official world record attempt, he would have to prove it by setting up a daily practice schedule where he would speed clap in longer intervals than his usual 15-20 seconds.” (Also read: Eyeing Guinness and Limca Book of Records, Mysore Man Puts 20 Burning Candles in His Mouth) Also Read - Buddhist Monk Chops Off His Head to Please Buddha, Hopes to be Reincarnated As 'Higher Spiritual Being'
“I think it was important for Seven to witness and understand that a lot of preparation and planning goes into something like this. It’s not enough to just be good at something,” the father said.

Seven began rehearsing daily by timing himself against the microwave.
He gradually built his routine up to three times a day and would often have to take days off due to the blisters he’d develop, Guiness World Records said.
