Tai Chi World Record Smashed

Posted by Charlie @ Discovering Mandarin Sunday, 9 August 2009

The World record for amount of people simultaneously performing Taichi was smashed last night, the anniversary of the Beijing Olympic opening ceremony. Almost 34 thousand people from all walks of life gathered at the bird's nest for a 6 minute taichi performance.

The 33 thousand, 9 hundred and 96 people performed taichi at the 'Bird's Nest' National Stadium. They successfully created a new Guinness World Record, breaking the record that was made by 30 thousand and 648 people in 2004 in Henan province.

  1. That's impressive! The energy generated by so many people focused on a common goal must have been an amazing sensation.

  2. I have to say, I wish I was there to feel it. You're right, I bet it was amazing!!
