About Mohammed Al Sheikh

Mohammed Al Sheikh from Gaza has developed an unique talent whereby he can contort his body in all sorts of unimaginable positions with ease.
He was not contended by only participating in the TV reality show, he was aiming much higher than that.
In order to achieve his dreams he had submitted the video to Guinness World Records where he is seen lying on the ground, his chest touching the floor and his legs rotating 360 degrees around his body.
Soon after that record attempt took place in Amman, Jordan where Mohammed managed to get 33 full body revolutions maintaining a chest stand thereby breaking the previous record of Leilani Franco who had a record of 29 full body revolutions maintaining a chest stand.
After achieving the Guinness World Record title Mohammed says he was inspired by Leilani Franco and Zlata for this title.
His famous acts include bending his legs from over his shoulders towards the floor, handstands on the back of the camels and jumping in Spider-like pose.
