Michelle Obama, a.k.a. at this event as the official “Jumper in Chief”, attempted to break the Guinness World Record for the most people doing jumping jacks in a 24-hour period. To break the record, more than 20,425 people around the world will need to do jumping jacks for a minute. This record was first set on March 22, 2011.
I suppose this is just another way to try and get the “Obama” name in another “first time ever in history” category.
For all purposes of fairness… I don’t know if you could count the kid with the cell phone (on the right hand side of Michelle) as one of the “jumpers”?
