New world record ‘bommetje’ set by 281 people

The Dutch may call it ‘bommetje‘ (small bomb); elsewhere this is known as performing a cannonball dive.

Sunday, over 281 people jumped into the water at the same time at the Pieter van den Hoogenband swimming stadium. Together they set a new world record cannonball diving.

The previous record, set by 232 people performing a cannonball dive together, dates from 2013. This record was held by New Zealand’s The Salty Syndicate. If the Eindhoven record is approved, it will not just be a new world record, but enter the Guiness Book of Records.

The Senet Diving Cup, Europe’s largest international diving competition, organized this attempt at breaking the former world record. The international diving competition started in Eindhoven on the 2nd of February and ends today, 5th of February.
