On Nov. 15, East Canton Elementary School and Middle School physical education classes made their way into the Guinness Book of World Records.
Every year, sport stackers from all over the world team up and stack for 30 minutes on the same day. All the stackers are tallied up and the final number is put into the Guinness Book of World Records in the "Most People Sport Stacking at Multiple Locations in One Day" category.
Last year's record was 412,295 stackers and they are hoping to beat it. Sights are set on 450,000 stackers participating as sport stacking continues to gain popularity around the world.
According to Bob Fox, World Sport Stacking Association Founder & CEO, the Guinness event is a wonderful way to bring together sport stackers across the globe. "Sport stacking is an activity enjoyed by all ages and cultures. It promotes hand-eye coordination, fitness, teamwork, speed and lots of fun. This is the seventh year we've teamed up with Guinness World Records, and we're excited to have another shot at breaking a world record."
