Hula-Hoop World Records

While the majority of the Guiness world records for hooping are pretty much based on the small Wham-O Hula Hoop standard, the Hula Hoop World Records are still very impressive. Tonya Lyn Mistal hooped for a record breaking 88 hours without a break and without it going above her shoulders or below her knees. That’s a little over three and a half days. Check out the rest including the most hoops at once, the largest hoop (yeah!), running 100 meters while spinning a hoop and more.

    I just turned 15 yesterday and the day before that, when i was 14, i hula hooped for 12min 11 seconds and then had to go in for dinner, not sure if that is anywhere near the record for under 15 but thats my personal best (the 2nd time i’ve ever timed myself)

    hello, i m curious about this fun sport where my niece and nephew enjoyed well , thought of giving it a try!…
    here is certain doubt about this hula-hoop…
    kindly advise : do the weight or the diameter of the hoop differ from kid to adult in order to successfully doing the hula???how about some proper steps to adopt during the process??
    looking forward for some valuable reply!

    I am 12 years old and I have always loved hula hooping. So one day, I got my hoola hoop, looked at my digital clock, waited it to go to 2:04, and started hoola hooping. I was doing great until my stomach was getting sore and started getting tired and the hoola hoop slipped. It was 2:28. I did it for 32 minutes!But I could have done more…
