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.
