Dalton Meyer, 20, of Davenport, Iowa, is officially the world's fastest clapper. He clapped his hands 1,140 times in one minute, a verified Guinness World Record. Apparently he's been practicing since elementary school. From the Quad-City Times:
Eli Bishop, who previously held the world record for 1,103 claps in one minute, developed the wrist clapping technique Meyer utilizes. Wrist clapping is when a clapper strikes their palm with their wrist and fingers, rather than just fingers to palms[…]
It took two attempts — the first ripping the skin of his wrist because of friction — to hit that record-breaking number.
He should become the new spokesperson for The Clapper…. Clap on. Clap off. The Clapper.
