Canadian sets Pedal Boat World Record
Greg Kolodziejzyk from Calgary, Alberta, set a new world record by pedalling his human-powered boat "Critical Power 2" 241.8 km (151.3 miles) in 24 hours. He started Monday, September 8 and finishing the next day. Official observers from the International Human Powered Vehicle Association were stationed along the course to verify that Kolodziejzyk stayed to the outside of the markers and travelled the full distance measured. The record must be ratified by the IHPVA and Guinness World Records.
