In 2014, 53 countries took part in it, 14,130 people were involved, 164,707 pull-ups were performed. Due to the fact that the pull-up points were located in different time zones, the action started in Sydney (Australia), continued in Asia, Europe and Africa and ended in Los Angeles (USA). Weather conditions did not affect the event in any way. If in Africa and Central Europe the sun and warmth strengthened the sports spirit, then in Moscow the exercises were performed in the rain.

This event reached the international level in 2014 for the first time. And in Latvia, where the Federation of Workout and Calisthenics is located, the Day of pull-ups is held for the 4th time.
