Every Wednesday we’ll be shining a light on the coolest, wackiest, or most unique records from around the globe recently approved by our Records Management Team with our Spotlight series.
Students of Livermore Valley Charter School in Livermore, California, USA and their teacher Mr John Mahlstedt set up a fun day out of the classroom to attempt the most high-fives in one minute. You can watch the results in the video below.
The kids lined up in the school parking lot to high five their mathematics teacher John as he ran along the line.
This attempt took place back in June last year and was a success with a total of 215 completed high fives setting a new world record. Since that date, however, the record has been bettered by Brown & Brown Insurance in Orlando, Florida. The company's CEO J. Powell Brown managed to high-five 260 of his employees in 60 seconds in March this year.
