Colchian-Iberian style of swimming. In the third Millennium Henri Kuprashvili (ჰენრი კუპრაშვილი) establishes new ways for swimming over straits. On Friday, 30 August 2002, the Georgian historian and political scientist Henry Kuprashvili performed a Guinness record swimming across the Dardanelles, Turkey. The performance has no analogue in the world. With his hands and legs bound at four points or in the ancient Georgian military-training style swam 12 (twelve) kilometers in 3 hours and 15 minutes from port Eceabat (European side) to the village of Kepez near Çanakkale (Asian side), beginning at 16.30 p.m. and ending at 19.45, local time.
