It was a sight worth seeing and preserving for posterity - a huge ground in the Thammasat University of Bangkok in which 4500 Thai dancers did the hula-hooping without break for a whole seven minutes - the event had been organized by the Department of Health of the Health Ministry.

Actually, 5000 participants had begun the hula-hooping but 517 were disqualified because their hoops had fallen down.

The team of the remaining participants have thus entered the Guinness Book of World Records as reported in dailymail.co.uk of dated 13th of February 2013.

The Seyda Subasi-Gemici, the adjudicator of GBWR has agreed to the recognition of this new record which is nearly double the earlier one set in Taiwan in 2011 - that was a group of 2496 participants and they did the hula-hooping for only two minutes.

Before that, the record had been of a group of 2290 set in the year 2000 in Kaohsiung, Taiwan.
