Martin Hobbs performs this feat to raise funds to help children with malformations.
The South African Martin Hobbs has set two Guinness records by swimming solo 54 days in a row the 581 kilometers of Lake Malawi.
The 45 year old man culminated his feat on April 24 and had even more merit because that place in Africa is full of crocodiles, hippos and dangerous insects.
During his journey, the temperature of the water was around 30 degrees Celsius and the weather outside was even warmer, circumstances that made this adventure difficult.
On the 44th day, Hobbs beat the best record as a solo swimmer after covering 480 kilometers in less than 45 days, which was the previous record.
After completing his odyssey after overcoming a tornado and the horror caused by the animals in the area, this athlete became the first person to completely cross Lake Malawi.
Martin Hobbs performed his feat with the intention of raising funds for Smile Foundation, a charity from South Africa that helps children with various malformations.
