skipping world record smashed!

Posted on Wednesday, 23 September 2009 09:32PM by Scott Robert-Shaw
It is official - a world record for the most people skipping simultaneously has been smashed by children from schools in Staffordshire and Lincolnshire.
The attempt itself was made in June but has taken until now to check all the results. It as always expected that the previous record of 19,000 people would be broken but the new skipping world record for people skipping simultaneously is an incredible 43,772!

Although skip-hop was very involved in the preparation for the world record attempt through the supply of workshops to all the schools in the East Staffordshire School Sport Partnership, the credit has to go to Andy Mawdsley and his team of SSCOs and PLTs, and Vincent Brittain, PDM for South West Lincolnshire SSP, for organising such a formidable event. And, of course, all the children who skipped for three minutes on the day.

skip-hop would like to offer their whole-hearted CONGRATULATIONS to them all.
