    Thousands of people watched live as Captain Kaya Dover and Sergeant Watson pulled off this extraordinary feat in real time! No cuts, and no camera tricks!

    Guyana Defense Force’s Captain Kaya Dover today, 26th of June, 2022, made history by being the first men to swim across the Essequibo River, a distance of about 3 miles, in complete military uniform. Dover pulled off the daring stunt with his military uniform, including boots, which put an extra six pounds on his body and greatly increased the drag created by the water caught inside his uniform.

    This is not the first time Dover swam across the Essequibo River. On March 20, 2022, Dover had swum across the Essequibo River as a personal challenge to himself and to test his athletic abilities. After accomplishing that, he wanted to do something that had never been done before. So he came up with the idea of swimming across the Essequibo River in full military uniform and having it streamed live on Facebook.

    Dover and his colleague, Sergeant Watson, who also performed the same feat, hit the water at 3:00 P.M today, 26th of June, 2022. Dover finished first at around 4:20 P.M. – making it across the Essequibo from the Eastern Bank to the Western Bank in just about 1 hour, 20 minutes. His colleague took a bit longer but finished as well. There were rescue boats cruising along in case of an emergency.

    If you missed the live video, you can still watch it here. Follow Captain Kaya Dover on his Facebook Page to keep updated with his amazing activities.

    Thank you for making your country proud!
