Bikini record set in Johannesburg
Times Live ^ | 11/7/2009 | Sapa

A new Guinness World record has been set in South Africa for the most women to parade around in a bikini, organisers say.

Kellogg’s Special KR’s Sarah Mansfield said 287 bikini clad women descended upon Melrose Arch in Johannesburg on Saturday to help break the record for the “World’s Largest Bikini Parade”.

“Decked out with smiles, sunglasses and even heels, these confident and fun-loving women of all ages, shapes and sizes paraded down 1,690 meters of Melrose Arch Boulevard to break the world record.

“We were delighted to see tall, short, boyish, curvy, pear and apple-shaped women all have the confidence to do things ’their way’, and participate in the parade.

“Spirits were high as not only were these women celebrating their femininity, [but] were making a difference by creating awareness for breast cancer in South Africa, Mansfield said.

Special KR made a donation to the non-profit breast cancer awareness group, Pink Link.

“Celebrities Bonang Matheba, Grant Nash and Anele Mdoda were there to show the girls their support.

“The day culminated into a summer celebration, as the Piazza at Melrose Arch was transformed into a summer escape amongst the urban architecture. Ladies were able to enjoy the entertainment and festivities on the Astroturfed Piazza which donned sexy sun loungers, water pools and even a mani and pedi area where the girls could escape to, to enjoy some pampering.”

Not true. I have darker skin than Obama and I put on sunscreen and a hat when I'm in the sun for any period of time. My father has had basal cell carcinoma removed from his ears and cheek. Obviously, it is much less likely to happen than those with whiter skin...but it does happen.

If you can get sunburnt, you can get skin cancer, I guess.

But a dark skinned person’s gotta be in the sun a hell of a long time to get any burn to speak of. I’m one of those unlucky ones that burns bad. I can feel hot stinging/tingling deep in my skin within seconds of direct sunlight touching my skin.

??? As the article mentioned, this whole thing is about breast cancer, not skin cancer.
