New world record for largest group of water skiers claimed over in Australia.New world record for largest group of water skiers claimed over in Australia.

It took a group of 114 water skiers to break the previous record of 100 water skiers all of which were towed by a single boat for the distance of one nautical mile. Apparently the group in question had been trying to break the previous record for quite some time. Congrats.

88,000 students team up to try and break world record for jumping rope.88,000 students team up to try and break world record for jumping rope.

Organizers say more than 88,000 people participated at more than 500 schools. That would easily beat the current record of 59,000 jump ropers set in Australia. The results still have to be certified by the Guinness people.
