Video from China

A simple keyword search on YouTube took us to a video uploaded by South China Morning Post last year. A little girl can be seen doing somersaults in a room identical to the one in the viral video. “A 5-year-old girl from China’s Shanxi province can do 80 somersaults continuously in 1 minute. She has been practising it for 1.5 years with her father, and wants to break the Guinness World Record some day,” reads the video description on YouTube. The little girl has been identified as Li.

The video viral on social media was also found on YouTube, uploaded on August 30, 2020.

An old video from China was therefore shared with the false claim that ‘Jaspreet Sandhu’ performed 53 somersaults in 80 seconds.
