World record attempt with HydroStar

On 14 and 15 July 2018, a team of German free-swimming champions, Olympic participants and the 12-time world champion and three-time Olympian Thomas Lurz, undertook a world record attempt against the Hydrostar in the BINDER trade fair pool.

The team was put together by Stefan Lurz, German national trainer for free swimmers.

The idea to swim the 51 km long ferry route from Gedser (DK) to Rostock (DE) against the Hydrostar in the BINDER pool in less than 10 hours turned out successfully for the elite swimming team.

Binder offers its warmest congratulations on this success.

The world record attempt was held as a charity relay to benefit Kinderhilfe Organtransplantation (children’s aid for organ transplants). It was organised by SVW05 (Würzburg swim club) and Fitness Club SVW05 under the direction of Rainer Griebl.
