(Newser) – Thirty skiers grabbed hands, sped down a hill in Canada, and did a joint backflip, hoping for a Guinness record. The good news: It's probably the biggest simultaneous skiing backflip in history, the Telegraph reports. The bad: The group missed the entry deadline, so they'll try again next year. The Quebec event featured some members of Canada's freestyle skiing team, and was organized by mogul champion Mikael Kingsbury, adds Sky News. One participant explains they spent two hours prepping in small groups before trying the jump. The first attempt was a flop because the line broke; the second a success.
