Swimmer Smt G. Syamala: Our 47 year old Mrs. G. Syamala from Hyderabad has created history. Successfully swam 30 km from Sri Lanka to India. Not to create a record as the first Telugu woman to swim so far in the sea, she became the second woman in the world. She started from the Sri Lankan coast at 4:15 am on Friday and reached Dhanushkodi in Rameshwaram after swimming continuously for 13 hours and 43 minutes.
