    Today at Field Day, the USAFA Class of 2018 attempted to break the Guinness World Record for chain push-ups. It looks like they did it, but the official results are not in.

    Way to go 2018!

    Wouldn't the record require them all to actually complete a pushup?

    The way I'm spinning this is that my DD set a Guiness World Record for push ups my doing three of them with 1,150 people on her back. :smile:

    I was wondering what you meant.....then I watched the video.

    Fun way to spend an afternoon though.

    A missed opportunity. They could have also set a world record for the longest human centipede.

    Setting two world records at the same time would have set a new world record for simultaneous world records.

    Fun stuff, and I love that diversion during BCT. Promoting teamwork and camaraderie and having fun to boot.

    Perfect thing to see before closing out of the SAF and getting back to the work at hand.

    Cheers!

    My son was part of this. He told me the best part of it was that, since it took so long to arrange everybody and get everybody in line, they were able to lie on the grass and take a nap, which was appreciated. Bad part, he got a pretty nasty sunburn on the back of his legs.

    I now have a vision in my head that will take large quantities of Bleach to remove.
