 Longest human chain of ice skaters-world record set by Mexico City

[Jan 11]MEXICO CITY--More than 200 children and teenagers wobbled across a large rink in Mexico City's main square Wednesday and set a new world record for the longest human chain of ice skaters.
   To break the record, more than 102 people needed to skate in a chain for more than three minutes, said Jose Pablo Rodriguez of event organizer Key Entertainment.

   Mexico City topped that when 225 kids aged about eight to 15 skated in a line, said a city government employee who wasn't authorized to give his name. It took them five tries, he said.

   Photos showed a long line of skaters dressed in white and red, each holding the waist of the person in front of them like a conga line, skating around the rink.

   Opened last month for the holiday season, the rink covers some 34,445 square feet (3,200 square metres) - twice the size of a professional hockey rink. "The dimensions of our rink here in the Zocalo make it a little easier for the...people to skate all at the same time," Rodriguez said.
