Largest hula hoop spun (female) in ! Hula hoop extraordinaire Getti Kehayova (USA) - @getti_hulahoops - had a mission to continue her family’s legacy of being in the record books, and we’re happy to say she’s succeeded after becoming one of the stars of this year’s 2020 edition.⁣ ⁣ With an extraordinary passion for the art of hula hooping, Getti has swung her way into the new book for spinning the world’s largest hula hoop spun (female) at a whopping 5.18 m (17 ft 0.25 in) in diameter.⁣ ⁣ "I grew up in the circus with my sister and our parents, traveling all over the world performing as acrobats," says Getti. "And then my sister and I had my very own hula hoop act, so she is the one that basically got me started."⁣ ⁣ And achieving the record took a lot of hard work and dedication - not to mentioned brusies and almost breaking her ribs.⁣ ⁣ "It was quite painful because the hula hoop is pretty heavy, so every time that revolution and spin comes around and it touches every part of your body, it kind of feels like a punch up against your body." ____________________________________________________________
