HALIFAX, England, Jan. 18 (UPI) -- A British gym teacher said he set a Guinness World Record for longest soccer throw-in by tossing the ball 163.32 feet, half the length of a soccer field.

Danny Brooks, 28, of Halifax, England, said he developed a special throw using flips learned from his gymnastics training to launch the ball into the record books in December, The Sun reported Monday.
