Snow ballistics

 

Leuven’s students did not have to wait for the winter to start having fun in the snow this year: on 14 October, several thousand students – 5,694 to be exact – broke the snowball fight world record. They smashed the previous record – 3,749 participants – held by Michigan Technological University. Skikot travel agency organised the record-breaking event, for which 120 tons of snow were shipped to the Ladeuzeplein!
