Michelle Obama Sets Jumping Jacks World Record, With Some Help

By Bryan Toporek — December 13, 2011 1 min read

First lady Michelle Obama set out two months ago to shatter the Guinness World Record for the most people doing jumping jacks in a 24-hour period.

Consider that mission accomplished, Mrs. Obama announced yesterday on the Let’s Move! website.

The old record stood at 20,425 people, according to a guest blog by my colleague Nirvi Shah over on Politics K-12.

Now, thanks to Mrs. Obama and the Let’s Move! initiative, the record stands at 300,265 people. Suffice it to say, anyone looking to break .
