Extreme hugging: Record sought at Winter X Games
ASPEN, Colo. – Call it extreme hugging. A woman is trying to break a world record at the start of the Winter X Games.
Dagny McKinley of Steamboat Springs, Colo., is trying to set a Guinness world record for most hugs given in a 24-hour period. Her venue of choice is the Winter X Games at Buttermilk Mountain.
McKinley told the Aspen Daily News she’ll need to deliver more than 5,000 hugs to X Games spectators to set the record. She’s setting up near the public entrance to the competition, under a banner reading “world record attempt.”
The X Games begin Thursday.
