About 6,000 students and faculty members of the University of Antique (UA) on Wednesday huddled together on campus grounds as they vied for the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest human anchor.

In a statement on its official website, the university said the anchor formation was part of its 62nd founding anniversary, with the theme “UA: Strongly Anchored on Quality Assurance,” and a response to a challenge of Angkla party-list group.

“This is evidence that everything is possible if we work together,” Angkla vice chairman Capt. Ronald Enrile was quoted as saying.

“This feat will surely put UA on the world map and will be remembered until one community breaks our record,” Capt. Geronimo Dolor, College of Maritime Studies dean, said.

The university said the formation will be included in the 2016 Guinness Book of World Records “as validated by external auditors and confirmed by a representative from Guinness.”

UA said the 6,000 wrist bands with serial numbers were distributed by a Guinness representative for monitoring, was not sufficient for the participants. YG/CDG
