World record success for bounce-a-thon held at Loughborough University

Students, staff, and members of the local community who took part in a ‘bounce-a-thon’ at Loughborough University have set a new world record.

The world record is for the most people bouncing simultaneously in one place. In total, 324 took part in the bounce-a-thon meaning Loughborough hopefuls regained the record.

The event was organised by graduate enterprise ambassador Becky White. Becky and members of the University and local community set a new world record back in 2012 as part of the University’s Olympic Torch Relay celebrations and have now reclaimed their title.

Becky said: “We are absolutely delighted to have regained the title for the most people bouncing in one place. Organising a world record attempt is a huge challenge but we are so relieved that we have managed to pull it off once again.

“I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took the time out to get involved, without them we would never have been able to achieve this.  It’s a great feeling to be world record holders once again!”

Becky is now selling the world record trampolines along with her own Bounce for Beginners DVD workout. Visit www.onesixeightfitness.com for further information.
