Evidently not. The Universal Marathon Cold Swimming Association is currently organizing a marathon relay swim of 50 hardened swimmers capable of swimming 680 kilometers (422.5 statute miles) in the 4-7°C (39-44°F) cool waters of Lake Baikal (non-wetsuit). The non-wetsuit lake swim would definitely extend the current lake world record – and under tremendously challenging circumstances.
