Video: World’s Slowest Olympic Swimmer…Ever

(WSCR) This is the Olympics, right?

The 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia featured none other than Eric “The Eel” Moussambani of Equatorial Guinea.

Moussambani swam a 100-meter freestyle heat as the only swimmer, due to two other disqualifications. As such, he recorded the slowest 100-meter freestyle performance the Olympics had ever seen.

Moussambani will return to the 2012 Summer Olympics in London as a coach for Equatorial Guinea.
