Photos: Going for the record

Peter Nestler attempts to set a Guinness World Record by bum skipping as many times as he can in 30 seconds during an assembly at Glacier Valley Elementary School on Friday. Unofficially, Nestler scored 93 during the attempt. Nestler, of Juneau, is planning on breaking three Guinness World Records over the next week. The other events are the most rope skips while keeping a soccer ball in the air in one minute and the fastest mile hopping on one leg and jumping rope.
