I'm participating in "🇺🇦 An hour for Ukraine - record. Hey William, you do an amazing thing and use our sport and your ability perfectly. 🙏Thank you!🙏
The nation of Ukraine has been invaded by the Russian military, and Ukrainian civilians are in great peril. After the campaign is finished, feel free to help at UKRAINE.ME - website with the links to the verified Ukrainian Charities.
To raise money for food and supplies for their defense, and hopefully later for the rebuilding of Ukraine, I will be attempting to swim as far as I can underwater in one hour, as a series of 25-meter laps.
All laps will be without breathing or propulsive assistance, according to the freediving rules of ‘dynamic apnea no fins’. This type of swimming is part of my freediving training for depth world records, but I have never attempted to see how far I can go in one hour. I hope to do at least 100 laps, maybe as much as 120 (which would be 3km)
You can pledge support to the campaign with an amount per lap or a flat donation. Every little bit helps, and it will be transferred immediately via a Ukrainian distribution center to the families currently in shelters with dwindling.
Thank you for your support 💙 💛
