Moses Lanham - the backwards feet man

Moses Lanham can turn his feet 120 degrees behind him. Known as ‘Mr Elastic’ and ‘The backwards feet man,’ he intends to walk 20 meters with his feet turned backwards to get into the Guinness Book of Records. Moses has hypermobility (double jointed-ness), a condition where joints can stretch beyond their normal range of motion. Seems he was born with extra tissue and cartilage in his joints which has made his hips, knees and ankles especially elastic. Despite their look his flexible feet cause him no pain. As a student he would frequently walk backwards for a prank and sometimes wore his clothes backwards to match the direction of his feet.
