Local teen breaks "Dance Dance Revolution" world endurance record
Man, people are obsessive about this video game. They even have big sites dedicated to it. Anyway, after over 37 hours of dancing on the video game "Dance Dance Revolution Extreme" at a local arcade, Drew Gamble called it quits this morning, breaking the unofficial world record by 90 minutes. There would've been two kids that broke it, but the 2nd one mis-stepped and was disqualified after playing the faster tunes. The teens used the event to raise money for a local charity.
If nothing else, the video game can keep participants in shape. The story says that his partner has lost about 90 pounds since he began using the dance machine regularly, and both have very low heart rates. They even had a couple endurance athletes (marathoners and triathletes -- common folks around here) stop by to lend their support.
