Second Lt. Jalyessa Walker, 23, a former cheerleader at the school, performed the feat Saturday during halftime of UTEP's game against Rice University to break the record of 35 back flips set by Miranda Ferguson, 16, a Texas high school cheerleader, the El Paso Times reported Monday.

Walker said the total, which will be a world record if approved by Guinness, was one flip short of her goal.

"I wish I didn't run out of room so I could have done 50," Walker said. "As soon as I hit the concrete, I was starting to get tired and scared because I didn't want to fall."
