From Dec. 10 to Dec. 21, it doesn’t matter what time of day you tune in to this livestream there will be a swimmer at this pool in Mountain View. The tech workers turned world-record hunters are trying to get their Guinness badge of honor.
“There’s an existing record set in 1979, so it’s kind of worthy of being broken. The record stands at 10 days 470 miles,” said organizer Craig Robinson who has been in touch with the previous world record holders from Ohio.
The eight swimmers are setting a goal of eleven days and as many miles past 470. They swim in relay, with at least one person in the pool at all times.
