Water skier Reina Iglesias from Acapulco, Mexico, has managed to smash the world water skiing speed record, with a run of 153 miles an hour, yes that its right 153 mph on his bare feet, incredible isn’t it!
According to Reina Iglesias “We reached a speed of 153 miles (246 kilometres) per hour in our second attempt. We had to abort our first attempt because the helicopter was going up and pulling my feet out of the water. So, we succeeded in breaking the Guinness Record in our second attempt,” This is some serious speed, but amazingly, there was already a water skiing world record, set by the US water skier, Scott Pellaton back in 1989, when he managed to reach 135 miles an hour!
