PASAY--Go For Gold godfather Jeremy Go is happy to see a huge number of basketball enthusiasts joining a simultaneous dribbling event at the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds.
This despite a failed attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the most number of dribblers converging together.
"Na-achieve pa rin natin ang goal natin," Go said after the world record attempt.
The said goal is to further develop the game of basketball to the communities.
"Yung 3,800 na tao na yan, makakauwi ng bola sa mga bahay at barangay nila, at alam mo naman na ang isang basketball, hindi lang isang tao ang makikinabang nyan. Sana after this, maraming mag-pick up o maglaro ng basketball," continued Go.
The said estimate is just about half of the current record of 7,556 set in 2010 by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency in Gaza Strip.
But those people came from all walks of life, from professional ballers like the San Juan Knights to celebrities like Sam Concepcion and Nadine Lustre to even walk-ins who just wanted to experience what it is like to attempt for a world record.
With that said, Go assured that another world record attempt will take place in the near future.
"Hindi tayo hihinto hanggang makuha natin ito," Go vowed.
