The Juggling Information Service Committee on Numbers said a Florida teenager set a world record by completing 26 catches with 10 balls.

The committee said the May 28 feat by David Ferman of Jacksonville, an 11th-grader at The Bolles School, beat out the previous record of 23 catches with 10 balls, set by Bruce Sarafian in 2001, the (Jacksonville) Florida Times-Union reported Wednesday.

"It took until I lost count of how many catches, and that allowed me to break through the mental barrier, just push through," Ferman said. "I actually had to go back and watch the slow-motion replay and count the catches."

Ferman was crowned champion in the nine-ball endurance and seven-ball freestyle juggling categories at last year's World Juggling Federation conference in Las Vegas. He is scheduled to compete in the event again July 5-11 in Springfield, Ill.
