On Friday 20th, tens of thousands of kids and adults at aquatic facilities around the world were united for the fifth year in a row to set a new Guinness World Record™.and WaterWorld Themed Waterpark in Ayia Napa was the official host of this tremendous event in Cyprus. The global record attempt for The World’s Largest Swimming Lesson™ (WLSL), took place at 3 pm GMT (11am ET, 8 am PT.)
Team WLSL holds the current Guinness World Record™ for the largest simultaneous swimming lesson, which stands at 32,450 participants representing 13 different countries across five continents! The 2013 WLSL event generated more than 50 million media impressions, spreading the event’s important message to hundreds of thousands of families.
Tragically, drowning remains the leading cause of unintended, injury related death for children ages 1-5, and the second leading cause of accidental death for children under 14. Research shows participation in formal swimming lessons can reduce the risk of drowning by 88% among children aged 1 to 4, yet many kids do not receive formal swimming or water safety training.
WaterWorld Themed Waterpark Ayia Napa was one of the official Hosts from all over that provided their facilities for the WLSL 2014 event in Cyprus. Parents where invited to learn more about this phenomenal event by visiting WLSL.org.
