The Butterdome was packed Friday with 4,979 University of Alberta participants sporting green and gold who came together to take back the Guinness World Record for the largest dodgeball game.
For the third year in a row, the game, which lasted almost an hour, was won by the gold team. Spectators included President Indira Samarasekera, Provost Carl Amrhein, and Liberal leader Bob Rae. Leading up to the game, both teams were chanting “U of A” and mascots Guba and Patches were seen crowd-surfing.
This record puts the U of A above the record set in September by the University of California, Irvine, who held a game in September with 4,000 participants.
