A Bakersfield California elementary school teacher is looking to break three World Records in Just Dance 2015 starting on the 11th July.
Carrie Swidecki started playing Dance Dance Revolution in her local donut shop (only in America) and failed after 10 steps and was heckled by another patron of the shop. After that she chose to get better at the dance rhythm games and even uses it to help children get exercise while having fun.
Since playing dance games, she has dropped 75lbs (almost 5 and a half stone) and has gained recognition in the Guinness Book of World Records.
Swidecki told News 23
At 38-years-old, I never imagined I’d be setting the world’s standard with “exergaming” with 7 marathon world records and 101 high score world records that I set in 12 hours
The World Record in her sights involves dancing for 140 hours over 6 days (a maximum of 144 hours) in Ubisoft’s Just Dance 2015, the current record is 135 hours. While setting the record she will also be raising funds and awareness for the charity, Children’s Miracle Network.
News 23 covered Swidecki’s story which you can check out below.
Just Dance 2015 is available for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
