Japanese School Kids Set A One-Minute Guinness World Record For Skipping Rope!



Fourteen young pupils from Fuji Municipal Harada Elementary School in Fuji, Shizuoka, Japan have turned a fun playground game into an official Guinness World Records title after achieving the Most skips over a single rope in one minute by a team.

The rope and 12 students hopping through in an orderly blur, maintaining enough space to avoid a single disastrous mistake and enough pace to set the new 60-second mark setting a new Guinness World Record with an incredible 225 skips in one minute.

Each of the 12 skippers jumped through the rope more than 18 times, Guinness says.As one comment on the Guinness Facebook page reads, “at first glance i thought it was a GIF on an endless repeat loop.”


Children love to practice skipping with their friends, but the sport is often taken very seriously in Japan, as shown by the number of skipping records that have already been smashed in the country in the past 12 months.
