Organizers at the University of Alberta attempted to shatter a world record by hosting a 1,000-person dodgeball game. And while the Edmonton Sun notes that "it will be several months before officials from the Guinness World Records verify the accomplishment," the attempt appears to have been successful.

The previous record, set at San Diego State University, was a 450-person match. Alberta students and staff obliterated the old mark by organizing an epic showdown with 1,200 participants. Scroll down to see footage from the event.
