Olympic swimming champion and world record holder, Sun Yang of China, set a record of a different kind overnight.

The Chinese superstar offered himself up for a one-off swim class as a prize at a charity auction in his home country. While plenty of people would love the opportunity to splash around with one of the world’s best, not all could afford the 80,000 RMB starting price.

Chinese actor Pu Cunxin with a bid of 150,000 RMB won the prize for his daughter. The funds raised will go to children living in impoverished mountain areas.
