FAIRFIELD — Children at K.I. Jones Elementary School helped set a new world record in November for sport stacking, principal Mickie Giacomini says.
“It’s exciting to be able to tell people that ’I helped break a Guinness World Book record,’ ” Giacomini said. “That’s just not something you hear every day, and now 743 people from our school can say that.”
Children at the school participated Nov. 14 as part of an international effort that successfully broke the Guinness World Records record for sport stacking – placing cups in sequence as quickly as possible.
Stackers from around the world smashed the 2012 record of 483,658 participants, when 555,932 people took part, the school principal said. All stackers were required to be engaged in sport stacking and fitness activities for at least 30 minutes Nov. 14, Giacomini noted.
“It was fun, and great for our brains,” she said.
