El Paso, TX (KTSM) — UTEP will be featured in a TV show for breaking another world record Saturday night during halftime.
Former UTEP cheerleader Jalyessa Walker broke her own world record for the most backflips. She did 53 flips across the Sun Bowl football field. The UK based TV show called "Officially Amazing", which is the official Guinness Book of World Records show, was in El Paso to film Walker for one of their episodes.
"It's gonna be their highlight episode of the season. So this is gonna be great for UTEP, great for El Paso and it's gonna showcase us in a real great light," said UTEP Marketing Director Daniel Veale.
Last year Walker did 49 backflips.
