Old Trafford hosts 'keepy uppy' world record attempt
10:40am Sunday 20th May 2012 in News
A SUCCESSFUL world record keepy uppy attempt ended at Old Trafford after 10 days.
Dan Magness walked for 200 miles from Wembley to Old Trafford to become the new world record holder for longest distance travelled juggling a football, breaking the previous best by 14 miles.
The challenge was in aid of ‘Keep It Up for Soccer Aid’, which raises money for UNICEF, and Dan visited local schools along the way to show off his skills.
Dan said: “This is without a doubt the craziest, most exciting and most challenging thing I have ever done.
It's incredible to finish on the day that we hear that all Soccer Aid funds will be matched by the government.”
Dan’s challenge comes ahead of the Soccer Aid celebrity football match at Old Trafford on Sunday, May 27.
