ATLANTA -- Mikayla Clark, the back-flipping 16-year-old cheerleader from Atlanta, shared her unusual talent on "Ellen" Monday.  

Clark, who attends Westlake High School, completed 44 consecutive back handsprings at homecoming and thought she'd beat the record.

Officials from Guinness World Records later said the record was actually 53 back flips, set by a girl in Texas.

Clark's new goal is to back flip from goalpost to goalpost by the end of her senior year. 

You can watch Ellen on WXIA-TV weekdays at 4 p.m.
