 Sam Hartford (born in 1982), learned to juggle from a book at around age six, after seeing a performance by Will Soto.

At age 10, Sam was inspired to start training for numbers juggling after reading about Albert Lucas's world records in the Guinness Book of Records. At age 14 Sam was able to juggle 9 balls, and at age 17 he flashed 11. His goal is to be able to juggle more objects than anyone else on earth.[1]

World recordsEdit

In 2002, Sam was the third person to flash 12 balls and the third person to flash 12 rings, and he is the only person who has done both. He submitted videos of those feats to JISCON in 2010, and both were confirmed as tied world records. (Those records have since been surpassed by Alex Barron and Willy Colombaioni.)[2]

In 2002, Sam was also the first person to flash 7 balls in one hand,(video) which several other people have now also done. Sam claims to have also done 7 rings in one hand for 9 catches.
