India makes new Guinness World Record in Kabaddi with participation of 128 players

India made history by making a Guinness World record with participation of 128 players, on The World Kabaddi Day, yesterday. The history was written at Tau Devi Lal Indoor Stadium of Panchkula in Haryana

An MOU recently signed between Holistic International Pravasi Sports Association (HIPSA) and the Government of Haryana, for the promotion of Kabaddi, globally, was one of the main reasons to choose India as a venue and Haryana in particular, for the event.

While Guinness had set the record benchmark for 84 players to break the record, the organizers had challenged the record, with an attempt for 154 players. The attempt began at 11 am on Sunday, in the presence of adjudicators from the Guinness team, and after three hours of continuous play, the record was finally broken at 2 pm with a participation of 128 players as declared by the Guinness adjudicator, Mr Swapnil Dangarikar.

The Guinness team presented the Guinness World record certificate to the Governor of Haryana Bandaru Dattatreya who was the Chief Guest at the event. The Governor then handed over the coveted certificate to the President of HIPSA, Smt Kanthi D Suresh, and the President of World Kabaddi, Shree Ashok Das.
