How many claps could you do in a minute? Well, an Iowa man has clapped his hands 1,140 times in one minute.

Dalton Meyer, 20, of Davenport, said his interest in speed clapping began when he was in elementary school and he saw a YouTube video of Kent French, who was once known as the fastest clapper in the world.

Meyer said his record attempt used the wrist clapping technique developed by the previous Guinness World Record holder, Eli Bishop, who managed 1,103 claps in one minute.

Wrist clapping is a technique that involves using the wrist and fingers to slap the palm of the other hand.

The record was attempted in March, but Meyer said he didn’t receive word that it had been made official until Halloween.
