GUWAHATI: On Tuesday, Elvis Ali Hazarika from Assam became the first-ever Assamese Swimmer to mark history in the Arabian Sea as he successfully swam across Dharamtar Jetty to the Gateway Of India in Mumbai, Maharashtra.

Meanwhile, he also stated that “this event was part of his preparation for the proposed North Channel Swimming which he will attempt next year.”
