TBILISI, Georgia (AP) -- A Georgian security official tied his arms and legs to swim "dolphin style" for 1.2 miles in hopes of persuading the Guinness Book of Records to add a new competition category.
Genri Kuprashvili, 54, undulating like a fish, covered the distance in a swimming pool in 92 minutes and 38 seconds Sunday. Journalists were invited to witness the event.
Kuprashvili, who is chief spokesman for the country's security service, hoped his feat would be recognized.
"Such a way of swimming was known in ancient Georgia and was called dolphin style," Kuprashvili said afterward.
