Another day, another absurd world record shattered. A total of 750 students skipped into the record books on Tuesday setting the mark for the most people skipping Double Dutch at the same time.
According to the Taipei Times, the event took place in New Taipei to promote National Sports Day, as well as the Taiwanese athletes who will compete at next week’s Asian Games in Incheon, South Korea.
A Guinness representative was on hand to make sure the whole thing was legit. Somehow, he witnessed 597 kids jumping for one minute without messing up (so that’s 153 failures, who will all totally pretend like they are in Guinness anyway). They crushed the old record of 250 jumpers.
The whole thing was streamed on YouTube, check out the news report:
We can’t wait to find out what group record will be demolished tomorrow. Hoping for Red Rover.
