Well, that's one record blown right outta the water!
The Guinness World Record
for the longest
marathon gaming session for Grand Theft Auto IV
(28 hours) was recently beaten by Clarksville, Tennessee native David Scherer
"Why did he do it," you ask? Well David, an avid swimmer, took on the Liberty City challenge in order to raise money to build a new indoor pool facility for the non-profit, parent-run competitive swim team he coaches named the 'Swimming Eagles.'
"Swimming is the best type of exercise you can get," Scherer says at hour 48, the record already broken. "It is because of swimming that I'm able to do what I'm doing right now."
