Sunday February 4th at 12.30 hours 281 people stood at the edge of the 50 meter pool in the Pieter van den Hoogenband swimming stadium. After the countdown done by presentator Johan Vlemmix (a local celebrity) they all jumped into the pool together! A new world record was set.
The old world record was set at 232 people and was achieved in 2013 in New Zeeland. The coming weeks the organisation of the Guinness Book of Records will judge the material sent in by the Senet Diving Cup. Afterwards, they will let us know if the world record was officially broken!
