New World Record in Constant Weight:125m!
On June 6th, 2012 in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt Alexey Molchanov became the deepest man in a competitive freediving discipline with a successful dive to 125 meters (410 feet), performed on just one breath. The total dive time was three minutes and fifty two seconds. Austrian, Herbert Nitcsh, held the previous world record of 124 meters for the last two years. Alexey’s dive was 30 seconds longer than any of his training dives to similar depths and this can be attributed to the effects of nitrogen narcosis caused by such deep diving. When interviewed Mr. Molchanov said that “ten seconds after surfacing and performing the required protocol, I needed to focus hard to keep control over my low oxygen levels and I succeeded. I am happy with this dive and the record. I am very thankful for having such a wonderful team of divers here supporting me”. Well done Alexey!
