Texas College Student Breaks World Record For Standing High Jump

November 4, 2019

A local student from the University of Texas Arlington has just entered into the Guinness World Records for the highest standing jump.  

Brett Williams broke the record by jumping a total of 5 feet and 5 inches vertically. 

"Some of my buddies were at the gym and they had a little box with a couple of 45 pound weights on it and they asked me to come jump on it and it turns out I was kind of pretty good at it," Williams told KXAS-TV.
