Students at Battle Academy will take part in “The World’s Largest Sport Stacking Event” Thursday. On Guinness World Records day participants around the world will be up stacking and down stacking pyramids in prescribed patterns, combined with a variety of fitness activities in this “track meet for your hands at warp speed.”
The goal is for 450,000 people to participate and, as in years past, Battle will be part of the event.
In sport stacking students up stack and down stack 12 specially designed cups called Speed Stacks in predetermined sequences as fast as they can. Stackers race against the clock, compete in relays and often combine sport stacking with fitness challenges as part of physical education classes.
Last year 412,259 stackers participated to break the previous Stack Up's record of 316,376. Once again tens of thousands of stackers are expected to contribute their sport stacking skills from across the United States and around the world, in countries such as Hungry, Germany, Israel, South Africa, New Zealand, Columbia and Taiwan.
