Alex Barron (born in 1993)[1] is a numbers juggler from London, England.[2] He started juggling around the beginning of 2007.[3] Alex is now the best in the world at juggling with more than 9 balls.[4] On October 21, 2011, he became the first (and so far the only) person ever to flash 13 balls on video, at age 17.[4][5]

Alex set his first world record at age 16, on August 13, 2010, when he did 15 catches of 11 balls,[6] tying with Bruce Sarafian's world record from 2001.[7] 3 days later he got 17 catches.[8] 3 days after that Peter Bone broke Alex's record with 18 catches,[9] and in 4 more days Alex did 19.[10] 2 days later Alex got 21 catches of 11 balls.[11] Alex claimed to have done 23 catches while he and Peter Bone were making a video together 4 days after he did 21 catches, but Peter's camera wasn't recording, and Alex's camera got knocked over by the wind just before he did it, so there was no video evidence of the qualify[12] until he was able to get 23 catches again on April 3, 2012, at age 18.[13]
