Thailand has set a new Official World Record (owr) for the most people hoop dancing. Nearly 5,000 people turned out to hoop it up in an attempt to set a new world record for the most people dancing with hula hoops simultaneously in one place, and they did so successfully. Earlier today at Thammasat University in Pathumthani, Thailand, 4,483 people kept their hoops spinning to dance music for seven minutes without interruption,
The event drew people in droves to the open air stadium and of those that made it to Thammasat University, only 517 dropped out or dropped their hoops. The event, organized by the Public Health Ministry’s Department of Health in Thailand, was aimed at creating health awareness among Thais throughout the country.
