Hutchinson students have officially set a Guinness World Record for the number of people working out with Hula Hoops, but organizers acknowledge that feat might not last long.
Students at Hutchinson Magnet School broke the record in May with 290 people participating in the workout, eclipsing the former record of 232 participants set in April by a group in England.
The Hutchinson News reports local workout coordinator Michelle Clinage received confirmation of the record late last week, but students weren't being told about it until Tuesday morning.
Parent-Teacher Association vice president Joanne Miller says the accomplishment might be marked with a banner inside the school or a message on the sign outside.
Clinage says the record is vulnerable, and she might eventually try to beat it with another group.
