Victory Gymnastics Academy in San Diego, California, set 7 new world records at their National Gymnastics Day celebration on September 21st. They are now ready for some friendly competition! Victory’s creative world records were set through recordsetter.com. Record Setter is a website that was launched in 2011. It’s mission is “to raise the bar of human achievement through world records.” I believe their secret mission is to have a lot of fun and there is no shame in that!

Notice the big red “Break It” button on the website for each record? . . . the ball’s in your court. But before you get out your snorkeling gear or hunt for a large onesie to stuff with foam, evaluate which records you, your gymnast or your team can attempt safely!
Record Setter’s rules:
(1) record must be quantifiable
(2) record must be breakable
(3) record must include sufficient media evidence
Creativity is highly encouraged!
