The Guinness World Records' record for the most hula hoops spun simultaneously is 180 and was achieved by Marawa Ibrahim (Australia) in Los Angeles, California, USA, on 2 November 2015.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the most people dancing with hula hoops simultaneously; it is 652 and was achieved at an event organised by Chiryu Junior Chamber International (Japan) at Chiryu Higashi High School in Chiryu, Aichi, Japan, on 13 July 2014. The Happy Healthy Hoops founder said her greatest challenge was spinning at least 20kg of hoops around her body.
"I have blisters on my hands from lifting weights, which are awful," she said. "Even though 20kg doesn't sound like much, the way you have to lift and throw them is quite hard."
The hula hoop instructor said she had taken up the sport on a whim more than three years ago and had never looked back.
