The Book of Guinness World Records is one of the most respected encyclopedic sources that can prove or disapprove some fact, settle some dispute. Russians have made their contribution to the Book as well. These are the main thirteen achievements from Russia.

1. Swimming from Chukotka to Alaska.

Swimmers from Krasnoyarsk Nikolay Petshak and Natalya Usacheva overcame 134 km in the Pacific and Arctic oceans from Chukotka to Arctic, and set the world record of the longest swim in the ice cold water. Thereby they were given the right to carry the Olympic torch in 2014.

2. The biggest crowd in swimsuits.

At the skiing resort in Sheregesh of the Kemerovo region, more than a thousand people snowboarded down the hill in swimsuits. The previous record of the same kind belonged to Canada (250 half-naked people). The next record was planned for today, April 16th 2016, by the way (2000 snowboarders!) - how is it going, we wonder?

3. Coolest parkour record.

The sports record was set by a traceur from Saint-Petersburg Eric Mukhametshin. He rebounded from the wall with a better result than English sportsmen who'd had the previous best achievement. Eric turned a somersault from the wall for 3 meters 20 centimeters - it's 16 centimeters more than the English guys had had. Eric even managed to jump over the car passing by.
