World Record For Balancing A Soccer Ball on the Head

The Rules

  1. A regulation size soccer ball must be balanced on the head as long as possible.
  2. "Balancing" does not mean "juggling" or "heading": The ball should not be moved.
  3. The ball should not be touched during the attempt.
  4. The record breaker does not have to stand all the time. Sitting down, for example, would be allowed - as long as the ball remains on the head all the time.
