White House (CNN) – Jumping with excitement, First Lady Michelle Obama and hundreds of local school children attempted to make their way into the next edition of the Guinness Book of World Records.
Mrs. Obama, also known today as the "Jumper-in-Chief", led 400 kids from schools in the DC area ages 8-14, to break the record for the most people doing jumping jacks in a 24-hour period. She kicked the challenge off at 3:00 p.m, on the South Lawn of the White House with one minute of continuous jumping jacks.
U GO GIRL!!! I think Michelle Obama is a very good role model for children. Keep up the good work!
8-14 yr old school kids? 24 hours?? Oh my how the elite fancy their fame.
I can`t wait to see how this non event is spun .
Well at least someone in the Obama family is chief of something cause Mr. Obama is doing a horrible job at Commander-in-Chief.
Good for you Mrs. Obama. Kids are getting too christie like in our country.
I really do miss those days when a First Lady was a lady...who are these characters sleeping in the Whitehouse?
Our FLOTUS is well-spoken, intelligent, educated, stands on her own achievements, and in fantastic physical shape. She is the GENUINE article, the epitome of womanhood and the American dream.
What a phenomenal asset to our nation. God Bless you and your family Michelle!
