Yesterday morning, community members participated in attempting to set the new world record for the largest simultaneous swim lesson during the 2013 World’s Largest Swim Lesson at the Newhall Park pool.
Thousands of swimmers of all ages across the world simultaneously took swim lesson that covered basic water safety and skills in attempt to set a new world record.
This is the fourth year of the Guinness World Record setting event that has been held. The goal of the event is to raise awareness and bring attention to the importance of teaching children how to swim.
The results will be calculated from all over the world and will be submitted to Guinness by the end of June. Results will hopefully be shown at the beginning of July.
