Martin Strel - 47-year old Slovenian man in 2002 swam the length of the Mississippi river in a single attempt, improving his own world distance swimming record made on the Danube River two years ago. He took 68 days to swim the 2,360 miles from northern Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico in Louisiana, swimming an average of 11 to 12 hours each day. Strel is also registered in the Guinness Book of Records as the first person to swim the entire length of the Danube River, covering 1,878 miles in 58 days in 2000. In addition, he was also the first man on record to swim from Africa to Europe across the Strait of Gibraltar in 1997. He also broke the world record for non-stop swimming when he covered 313 miles of the Danube in just 84 hours in 2001.
