A Stevenage 20-year-old with lightning fast hand speed has appeared in the 2018 Guinness World Records book for the second time for his sport stacking skills.

James Acraman’s efforts in the sport – which involves stacking plastic cups in specific sequences in as little time as possible – have earned him a place in the annual book of records, which was released last Thursday.

The former John Henry Newman student is featured for his record-breaking 171 cup pyramid built in 1m26.9s set in January this year, having had a two-page spread in the 2016 instalment.

He said: “I am beyond thrilled and excited to have been featured for the second time in this world famous publication. I consider this a huge privilege and something I am going to be grateful about for the rest of my life!”

James is available for school visits to help inspire and educate young people interested in participating in the upcoming official Guinness World Records. He can be contacted via Twitter @JamesAcraman.
