This Boston University junior is the world’s fastest mile runner… while juggling
Boston University junior Zach Prescott is officially the fastest joggler in the world.
Wait, what? Joggler? That’s right — ‘joggling’ is the term used for jogging and juggling simultaneously. Prescott ran a mile in 4:43.20 while juggling, breaking the world record on Boston U’s track:

Prescott broke the world record by a mere .6 seconds. It was not his first attempt – last year, Prescott was on pace to joggle a mile in 4:38, but then…..
Last summer, Zach made his first attempt at the coveted joggling record (seen below). He was on pace for a 4:38 full mile until a tractor drove onto the track in front of him forcing him to stop. pic.twitter.com/ZJ3wYDF7Yt— Ian Anderson (@IAndersonWrites) May 8, 2018
You can’t make this stuff up. Congratulations to Prescott for taking multi-tasking to a hilarious and impressive new level.
