Diliman Preparatory School (DPS) is on a quest to break the Guinness World Record for Swimming Relay on December 10. The school, led by President and former Senator Nikki Coseteng, will try to beat the Guinness World Record record set by Swim For Children Italy for the most number of people swimming one length in a 24-hour relay where a total of 5,028 participants completed a minimum distance of 60 feet or 18.3 meters in Padovanuoto, Padova, Italy in 24 hours, with an average of 17.1837 seconds per individual.
For their efforts, DPS have received support from several influential personalities in sports including Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) Chairman Rene Pardo and Philippine National Shooting Association (PNSA) President Art Macapagal. Pardo and Macapagal both expressed their pledge to join the swimming event during the SCOOP Kamayan weekly forum last October 1 to the delight of Coseteng.
DPS will bring together 6,000 swimmers including students, parents, teachers, celebrities, athletes, artists, among others in the DPS Guinness 6000 event which is expected to showcase the Filipino talent to the whole world. The big event will be held at the Olympic-sized swimming pool in the DPS main campus along Commonwealth Avenue in Quezon City.
Pardo and Macapagal both expressed their pledge to join the swimming event during the SCOOP Kamayan weekly forum last October 1. Former senator Nikki Coseteng, who is also the President of the event organizer Diliman Preparatory School (DPS), was delighted to receive such support.
In a similar effort last weekend, Pound-for-Pound boxing king and Saranggani Congressman Manny Pacquiao participated in A Run for the Pasig River 10.10.10 which aimed to promote a project to rehabilitate Ilog Pasig (Pasig River), as well as break the Guinness World Record for the Largest Eco Race in the World. The event was unofficially reported to have attracted around 175,000. Although an official count has yet to be released, the race was reported to have surpassed the 24-year record set by the “Bay to Breakers” 12K race in San Francisco, California, which had 110,000 participants on May 18, 1986.
