While we all love pogo sticks, breaking the record was no easy feat.

The new green electric cabs that Phillips jumped over are nearly 2m tall and 1.6m wide.

The pressure was on Phillips after his team-mate and existing record holder Dalton Smith broke his ankle before the annual Guinness World Record day. However, Phillips managed to jump at the opportunity and proceeded to break the record.

The star continued this high energy following his win, saying:

Wow, I am so stoked that I was able to break this record — I really wanted this for a long time, and it was pretty crazy being there this morning actually seeing the cars lined up when it finally felt real.

He went on to explain that his outstanding performance was ‘most of all a mental challenge’ and that he had to really ‘focus and control’ his jumps.

Phillips’ hard work was clear to those in attendance.

As Craig Glenday, Editor in Chief of the Guinness World Records book, said:

It was an absolute thrill to watch Tyler in action – the height he can reach is astounding, and a powerful demonstration of his total mastery of the pogo stick.

This year on Guinness World Records Day we’ve been blown away by the incredible talent and show of strength from our new Record holders.
