On Tuesday, Guinness released footage of a 14-year-old Pennsylvania boy setting the world record for highest jump pot of a billiards ball.

Theo Mihellis launched his cue ball over a 16.125-inch bar, and after a bounce on the felt, it found its way into a corner pocket. Mihellis went absolutely bananas upon breaking the record--by more than two inches--on his first try.

UPI reports that Mihellis has been practicing trick shots constantly since he got a pool table last Christmas. "It was something I wanted," he said of breaking the record.
