The 34-year-old Alonzo beat the previous high of 20,000 double unders in his attempt to bring the Philippines its first world record in jump rope.

In jump rope, a double under is performed when a participant jumps up higher than usual while swinging the rope twice under his feet.

Alonzo, who is trained and mentored by Gadric Chusenfu, has already submitted the required documentation and is currently awaiting recognition from the Guinness World Records for his record-breaking feat.
