World Record of the Day: In what is fast becoming an annual tradition, the University of Alberta sought to reclaim the Guinness World Record for largest game of dodgeball for the third year in a row.

4,979 students, staff, and faculty members gathered to throw big red balls at each other for over an hour.

At the game’s conclusion, Guinness World Record rep Philip Robertson confirmed the record’s return to Edmonton, saying simply: I’ve never seen so many people throw dodge balls against each other before.”

Watch the opening volley of the game below:
