1267 keepie uppies – new record for John Wallace aged 11

John annihilates his previous record of 927 (October 2010) by doing 1,267 keepie uppies … a training practice that shows as much mental strength as physical…. Let’s keep counting, John!

John Wallace aged 11 does 927 keepie uppies, a new personal record!  Using both feet, it takes him about 9 minutes to get closer to his current aim of 1000.  He makes it looks easy, but we all know it isn’t.  Well done John.  KEEP IT UP!

News Flash – almost 900 keepie uppies
