101 m on hold under ice – unofficial world record – video

Although winter did not show its true face and in Poland it passed almost unnoticed, without snow, frost and a solid portion of ice on the surface of all sorts of freshwater bodies, in Scandinavia several freediving world records were set under ice.

After Alexei Molchanov i Amber FillaryAfter Kristian Mäki-Jussila set two freediving world records in February and March, the third daredevil to achieve the feat was Kristian Mäki-Jussila. During an attempt conducted in the waters of the frozen Kaatiaala quarry, the Finn swam 101 m while holding his breath. It is worth mentioning that he did it wearing only swimming briefs!

Although records set under the ice are not honoured by any freediving organisation, they are recognised by Guinness and if all formal requirements are met, they are entered into the big book of records. Although the Finnish athlete achieved a distance of 101m in his attempt, which beat the previous result of 76.2m, his record will remain unofficial.

“If I set an official record, the application would cost €1,000. Moreover, there would have been a lot of expenses and bureaucracy. A good friend of mine was willing to sponsor the whole thing through his company, but I thought the record was not that important and did not accept his proposal,” – said Mäki-Jussila

The trial was secured on site by four divers and two ropes were stretched under the ice, one along which the competitor walked and the other acting as a safety line.
