Jim `The Shark` Dreyer to swim across Lake St. Clair hauling `train of pain` ton of bricks
Johannesburg, Aug 6 (ANI): A long-distance swimmer who calls him self 'The Shark' is all set for a 30-hour swim while pulling a ton of bricks in a lake near the US-Canada border.
According to News24, the holder of a number of world records for endurance swimming, Jim Dreyer revealed that he expects to set one this time for longest distance swimming while towing a ton of bricks, a record that doesn't currently exist.
Dreyer is doing it without a support boat and one of the dinghies is equipped with a radar target, so that he would show up on the radar screens, and would have to feed himself and will not leave the water until coming ashore, the report said.
The swimmer is swimming with a GPS tracking device that will post his position online and it is also equipped with a messaging system, the report added.
Dreyer is trying to raise money and awareness for Habitat for Humanity, the report further said. (ANI)
