Active Aging road showcum
S'pore Book Of Records event, 25 Oct 2009
Decided to go to this Active Aging road show because the 30s record to
break was made by Rachel in 2007. So all the Jumping Jewels and friends
had to report at Republic Polytechnic at 7.30am. We arrived in 4 groups
exactly on time. It was a cool morning and when the sun came out the
buildings kept us in the shade.
Tons of people mostly came for the briskwalk and mass workout. The
challenges where done on the VIP red carpet and cobble granite. When
wanted to do the 30s speed record event on this surfaces we suggested
the quite smooth granite tile area on the side. The organizers
understood the rational and agreed.
At the end of the event the organizers had to verify the results of the
team challenge, and Singapore Book Of Records will video verify the 30s
record event. Rachel defends both her Singapore record titles of
the most jumps
for 30s and triples.
The triples was not a scheduled
event but a national serviceman made a request with the organizer and
of Records official to have the event. This male
skipper jumped 80+
consecutive triples. Rachel jumped 94 triples, the most of the 5
Jewels who attempted the Triple event. We were not prepare for a
event and the hard solid floor made it tough so it was cool that we
It was a satisfying outing with our family of skippers and their
families, made sweeter by baging the two rope skipping records.
