Canadians set world records for fun

September 7, 2007

Students at a Canadian university will try to break two unusual world records to celebrate the start of the new academic year. Students at the University of Guelph will try to gain a place in the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest game of Simon Says. They will also try to smash their own record (1,740 participants) for the most simultaneous high fives. The university in southern Ontario already has quite a track record in unusual achievements, having set records for the largest synchronised dance to the song The Locomotion last year and the biggest game of Duck, Duck, Goose in 2005. In previous years, students at Guelph achieved records for the greatest number of people blowing soap bubbles simultaneously, the largest human conveyor belt and the biggest human centipede.
