BELMONT, Mich. (WZZM) - Students at Chandler Woods Charter Academy middle school in Belmont participated in a Guinness world record attempt for "most people sport stacking."

Sport stacking, also known as cup stacking, is when individuals or a team create sequences of cup stacks as fast as they can. The cups are typically stacked in pyramid shapes in sequences of 3-3-3 or 3-6-3. To do the task quickly takes a lot of practice.

The students sport-stacked for 30 minutes, along with thousands of other students from across the world. They did races, relays, and used cups of all size and shapes to help them make it through the whole half hour.

P.E. teacher Mike Vandyke signed up his class to attempt to break the world record of 412,259 participants. "What I like about it is that it incorporates both sides of the body right hand and left hand stacking with good hand eye coordination," explains Mike "using both sides of the brain because your alternating hands it is an excellent motor skill for this kids."

It will be awhile before the school learns if it has broken the record.
