PNG students help break Guinness record

Papua New Guinea students took part as Cebu in the Philippines broke one world record last Saturday, and now holds the newest Guinness World Record for having the largest Zumba class ever recorded in history. 

 Among the Philippines students were three PNG students, Daphne Maren, Pethlyne Bepa, and Shayanne Peniai, who participated as Cebu City attempted to beat India’s record of 6,671 participants.

 The students were among the 8,232 Filipino enthusiasts who grabbed the title from India and now holds another recognition in the Guinness Book of World Records.

 Zumba is a dance fitness program created by a Columbian dancer and choreographer during the 1990s. It involves dance and aerobic elements which incorporate hip-hop, soca, samba, salsa, merengue, and mambo.

 “Wow, I am so amazed and proud that I joined the activity. It was my first time to dance with that very big crowd and I am so impressed with the dynamism and unity of the Filipinos to achieve the record. They are very lovely and energetic people,” Miss Maren said.

 The students are under the education placement services and guardianship of Paradise International Education Consultancy (PIEC), an organization which helps PNG students study in Cebu. PIEC encourages its students to reach out to the Filipino community through engaging into outreach programs, volunteer works, and social activities.

 Among the world records that the Philippines have gained include the largest charity walk, longest basketball game, world young business achievers, world’s largest city, largest Gospel choir, and shortest living man. The country continues to make achievements in the global market and the whole world.
