A college student is the new world record holder in an unusual sport, setting the global standard right here in Houston Friday.

Matthew Feldman, a University of Florida student at Rice University this summer conducting research, is the new world record holder in joggling. As you might be able to gather from the name, it's juggling while jogging.

Feldman jogged one mile while simultaneously juggling five balls in six minutes, 33.65 seconds.

That beats the previous record of 7 minutes, 41 seconds, which belonged to American Bill Gillen, whose record had been in the books for 23 years.
