Moses Lanham plans on stepping into the record books in a rather unusual fashion.
'Known as backwards feet man' and 'Mr elastic', the Michigan based 49-year-old can rotate his feet 120 degrees behind him, a feat he hopes will earn him a place in the Guinness Book of Records.
As that's not all; he also plans on setting a record for the fastest man to walk 20 metres with his feet turned backwards.
Despite the daunting task ahead, Mr Lanham can however remain quietly confident - both records have never been attempted before.
Speaking to AOL News, Mr Lanham said: 'I know I can put my toes together in back, but for the record, I'll do a full 120 degrees.'
Despite the visually excruciating appearance, Mr Lanham says his flexible feet cause him no pain, in fact he quite enjoys the back-to-front feeling.
'A lot of times when I'm sitting down I'll put my feet in a twisted position because it's more comfortable for me,' he said.
Mr Lanham discovered his strange quirk at 14 after a high school gym class accident.
Climbing a rope, he lost his grip and fell nearly 18 feet before landing with his feet in an extremely awkward position.
'They thought something was dislocated,' Mr Lanham said. 'But I stood up and was fine.'
