Denmark’s Mads Pieler Kolding broke the record for fastest badminton smash in a competition in India on Monday, according to Danish media.

Kolding, who has not competed in the Olympics, recorded 264 miles per hour, according to a broadcast and Danish media.

That would break the Guinness World Record of 253 mph set by three-time Olympic silver medalist Lee Chong Wei of Malaysia in 2015.

However, the fastest smash outside of competition is reportedly 306 mph, reportedly recorded here.
