Competing at the German Grip Meeting 2017 organized by Stefan Falke in Hannover, Germany last Saturday, Christiane Schmidt broke the Rolling Thunder world record by knocking out 8 pull-ups.
Christiane Schmidt held the former women's world record for Rolling Thunder pull-ups at 7 repetitions and looking at the power she showed on this performance, it seems likely that she will push this record even higher.
Here is link to a video of her performance:
