Iranian female swimmer hits Guinness record for 2nd time

Iranian female swimmer hits Guinness record for 2nd time
IRAN  -  Iranian female swimmer Elham Asghari has swum her way into the Guinness Book of World Records for the second time after she broke her own swimming record over four thousand meters handcuffed.

Asghari received her second Guinness World Record Certificate in Dubai a while ago after registering her 5,500 meters swimming both in the Caspian Sea and a swimming pool in Tehran.

She swam all these distances in Muslim Costume Swimwear Islamic Hijab Modest Swimsuit for Women . "I´ve been able to set that record with full clothes on that means i have tolerated 6 kgs overweight," she told IRNA.

Back in 2017, the 36-year-old Iranian sportswoman recently completed the challenge of swimming handcuffed for more than three hours non-stop in the Persian Gulf waters off the coast of the southwestern port city of Bushehr, located 1,050 kilometers (652 miles) south of the capital Tehran.

She had swum 4,200 meters with her hands tied with handcuffs.
