  Egg and spoon race smashes record
Updated 24 October 2003, 17.11
Egg and spoon race smashes record
The world record for the biggest egg and spoon race ever was beaten on Friday.

A thousand children at Raynes Park High School picked up their eggs and scrambled 100m in the world record attempt.

They cracked it when 859 pupils passed the finishing line with their eggs in one piece and most importantly, still on the spoon!

If you dropped your egg you were immediately out.

Egg-cellent fun

The previous record was set eighteen months ago by a group of schools in Wolverhampton, when 694 pupils successfully completed the course.

Joanna, 15, thought the race was an egg-cellent idea. She told Newsround: "I was excited and nervous because I didn't want to drop my egg!"

Every pupil who took part will now be registered with the Guinness Book of Records and they'll all get certificate to prove it.
