Guinness record smashed
WESTERN Australia’s hockey community has united to rewrite history by smashing a remarkable Guinness World Record.
Como Secondary College Hockey Academy staged the world’s biggest field hockey lesson, an event that attracted 618 participants last month.
The previous record was set by Cundall Manor School in Yorkshire, UK, on March 25, 2015, and involved 509 people.
The event was held at Perry Lakes, Floreat and was open to people of all ages and experience levels.
Event organiser and academy parent helper Jane Scott said the day had been a huge success.
“It brought all the hockey clubs together, people from different clubs were represented and there was a real mix of people,” she said. “The oldest person was 73 while the youngest was two years old.”
