Six Israeli men claimed the world open water relay record after they swam home from Cyprus in a challenge meant to shed light on ocean pollution. The men, from age 42 to 66, left on Sunday at noon from the Cypriot town of Paphos with a support vessel to document their attempt to crack the Guinness Book of World Records. The point was to break the 366-kilometer record held by Americans, so with swims day and night in one-hour relays, with one teammate watching at ay given time while the others rested, the team arrived in Rishon Lezion late on Friday. The men had almost broken the record last year but a storm had stopped them. Read more at the Times of Israel.
