Johnny’s Jr. talent and B.A.D. member Akito Kiriyama performed a somersault from a platform 2.1 metres high during a concert on December 5, reports Daily Sports Online.

 

Kiriyama was performing in the Kansai Johnny’s Jr. X’mas Concert in Osaka.  It has been reported in front of a crowd of 1000 fans, Kiriyama climbed up onto the platform between songs, took a deep breath, then jumped and flipped around to land perfectly on his feet again.  The only other Johnny’s talents known to have succeeded in pulling off a somersault from that height are Noriyuki Higashiyama from Shonentai and Koichi Domoto from KinKi Kids.

“My personal best up to now was 1.8 metres,” Kiriyama said, making this a new record by 30 centimetres.
