Iranian of the day

October 10, 2006

Ali Shadlu, a relief worker of Iran's Red Crescent Society, set an enviable record as he swam the 600km width of the Caspian Sea in 53 days. Shadlu, who started swimming in the westernmost point of the sea, Astara, on Aug. 1, reached the easternmost spot Bandar Torkaman on Sept. 23. Following correspondence with the Guinness World Records officials, Shadlu's world record has been registered.
