AMERSFOORT – A Canadian record has tumbled in an Amersfoort park. Dutch gymnastics’ groups organized a giant cartwheel event in which participants were to make five cartwheels each in one minute, to gain entry in the Guinness Book of Records. Of course, the Dutch event needed to beat the 2007 Canadian effort of 478 participants. The Amersfoort attempt persevered and succeeded in their attempt, with 482 athletes meeting the basic radslag requirement.
