Hong Kong Double-Dutchers Set A Record: 671.5 Jumps In 3 Minutes

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne with news from the World Rope Skipping Championships in Sweden where Hong Kong's team set a new world record.

(SOUNDBITE OF ROPE SKIPPING)

MONTAGNE: That is the sound of the record for double Dutch being set - 671 jumps in three minutes, 3.7 jumps per second. Whoa. That would have made for some hyperspeed double-Dutch rhymes. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
