Chinese community sets Guinness World Record for eating 2,500 kg of roast lamb


Some 2,500 kg of roast lamb was served to over 4,000 people at a meal in Jianyang City of southwest China’s Sichuan province on Saturday, setting a Guinness World Record.

Despite the freezing cold weather, over 4,000 people flocked to the city and sat around a large number of tables, waiting for the lamb to be served. The organizer hoped to set a record for serving the most roast lamb at a meal in Jianyang.

More than 200 seasoned lambs, each weighing around 12.5 kg, were roasted on the grill racks for three hours.

The crowd began to eat the lamb after the Guinness World Record authentication officer announced no less than 1,500 kg of lamb would need to be served to break the previous record.

The challenge ended successfully half an hour later with the final result of 2,530 kg eaten.
