We had a blast working together with students around the world attempting to set a new Guinness world record!
Mount Pleasant, Utah (PRWEB) November 17, 2013
Wasatch Academy middle school students (WAMS) joined students from over 46 countries and 34,809 schools to attempt a new Guinness World record - most people sport stacking at multiple locations in one day. The 2012 record was 483,658 and the goal for 2013 is 500,000. To qualify for the competition, each school participating had to register a minimum of 25 stackers, stacking for at least 30 minutes.
The World Sport Stacking Association (WSSA) was formed in 2001 for the purpose of promoting and governing sport stacking around the world. Sport stacking not only develops important physical skills, such as hand-eye coordination, quickness and focus; it also promotes self confidence, teamwork and good sportsmanship. Keep track of STACK UP as it moves around the world. First stop is New Zealand, last stop Hawaii.
Katharin Roth, teacher and coach at Wasatch Academy registered WAMS students to participate in this year's record-breaking attempt. Roth reports, "We had a blast working together with students around the world attempting to set a new Guinness world record!"
