Speed Stacking – Latest U.S Craze

You have heard of soccer, surfing, sailing and even sumo wrestling. But I am sure you have never ever heard of Speed Stacking? Check out this new craze in the USA and let me know your thoughts :)

I don’t know if you guys and girls are familiar with this new sport, but it has taken the USA by storm and has collectively amassed over 10 million views on YouTube. Some electronic groups are even using the samples from one very popular clip that is online. Unfortunately I was not able to embed the specific video, as the chick is now like famous for stacking cups…Yes you heard correctly, these kids are world famous and hold Guinness World Records for stacking cups.

A special stack mat is used to count the stacks and the time.

Have a look at this video, as it shows some of the world records which have recently been set by youngsters all over the globe. I was extremely impressed by the second event, which is the speed stacking doubles event. They each use one hand and continuously build and take down a pyramid frame till they have completed the pattern. It’s mind boggling how these kids have become so good too!
