This was the scene when 2496 people performed a mass hula hoop event. Staged in Taiwan the crowd had to spin their plastic rings simultaneously for three minutes to break the record. The previous record held was for 2,290 people and had been set in 2000. This event was organised to celebrate the Republic of China's centennial and to encourage people to take more exercise.
