With a mind-blowing display of precision and timing, 14 students from the Fuji Municipal Harada elementary school in Fuji, Shizuoka, Japan, set a new Guinness World Record for the most skips over a single rope. In just 60 seconds, the students managed to skip 225 times without a single mistake.

Freestyle competitive jump rope is a real sport. It’s badass and has almost nothing in common with its schoolyard predecessor.
