The Biggest Gets Bigger

The Biggest Gets Bigger

The Midmar Mile, won by South Africa’s hottest open water swimmer of the moment, Chad Ho, and British swimming heroine Keri-Anne Payne, broke its own Guinness World Record this weekend. Over 14,200 swimmers – out of over 16,200 entrants – finished the 1-mile swim in a dam. This broke Midmar Mile’s own Guinness World Record, set in 2009 when 13,755 finishers were officially reported.
