This classic piece of footage from the CCTV-Guinness World Records Special 2011 TV series shows Wang Zhuoxin, a young school girl from Zhuang Central Primary School in Beijing, China, jumping over 110 individual skipping ropes.

Standing either side of Wang in two large semi-circles, 55 of her school mates swung the ropes – making sure they all moved together so as not to trip their friend up.

The challenge was a successful attempt at the record for Most ropes skipped, with Guinness World Records official Angela Wu on hand to adjudicate.

Previously the record stood at 90 ropes and was achieved by Ma Liang and the students of Jiang Bei Ting Tang Primary School for Bikkuri Chojin Special #3 (Fuji TV) in Dong Yang City, China, in 2010.
