Indian swimmer Aryan Singh Dadiala made headlines on Friday as he equaled the existing world record for the fastest male swimmer to swim the Sea of Galilee in his first attempt. The Sea of Galilee is the second lowest body of water in the world, approximately 214 meters below sea level, and presents several challenges such as eddies and wind storms. Dadiala, however, remained determined throughout the swim and didn’t give up in the challenging conditions to come out on top.
Aryan from Mumbai, who created a world record in November 2022 in Goa by finishing 32 km open water sea swimming in 5 hours 36 minutes, is the first Asian swimmer to swim the Sea of Galilee. He is a rising star in the swimming world and has been making waves with his exceptional performances in recent years. The young swimmer trained for months in preparation for this attempt and his hard work paid off in a big way. Aryan’s father, Surjeet Dadiala, called his son’s victory a ”proud moment for the country”.
He started his swim at 5:18 am on Friday but this time it was dark and very cold and he finished his challenging swim at 11:33 am. This equals the existing world record for the fastest male swimmer to swim the Sea of Galilee for the very first time. In 2017, the record for the fastest one-way swim was set by Guy Cohen in his 7th attempt.
Dadiala’s achievement has been celebrated by people all around the world, and he has become a source of inspiration for many aspiring swimmers. His dedication, hard work, and determination serve as a reminder that anything is possible with perseverance and passion.
