   Largest group to skip rope set world record in China

[July 13] BEIJING: A group of 3,009 people set a world record Thursday in central China, becoming the largest group to skip rope at one time, state media reported.

    The participants ranged in age from 5 to 68, and skipped rope for three minutes, the official Xinhua News Agency reported. Officials with Guinness World Records were on hand in Changsha, the capital of Hunan province, and acknowledged the feat, Xinhua said.

   The previous record was set by 2,474 people on January 23, 2005, in Hong Kong. The ropes used Thursday will be sent to 30 elementary schools in rural Hunan to spread the Olympic motto of "Faster, Higher, Stronger," sponsors said.
