Alenka Artnik set a phenomenal world record!

Yesterday, 7 November, in the Egyptian resort of Sharm el Sheik, Slovenian freediver Alenka Artnik set a new world record. The experienced athlete reached a depth of 114 metres during her attempt in the constant weight competition – CWT.

Thanks to her phenomenal performance during the Blue Week competition, held in the waters of the Red Sea, Artnik became the unassisted record holder in the CWT competition in mono fin. Until now, she shared the world’s best result with Italian Alessia Zecchini. Both ladies reached a depth of 113 metres at last year’s CMAS World Championships held in Honduras.

Sharm el Sheikh Blue Week Alenka Artnik During the competition held in Egypt, the experienced Slovenian athlete needed 3 minutes and 41 seconds to perform a record dive. After successfully completing the attempt, she did not hide her emotions and was touched. She also described her result as the biggest success of her career so far.

There are no words to describe how I feel right now, but I will start by expressing my gratitude. Exactly one month ago I arrived in Sharm el Sheikh for the final preparations of what has been a truly rollercoaster season. The guys Andrea Zuccari, Tito Zappalà, Alice Cattaneo, Dunia Quintero Rosquete from FreedivingWorld welcomed me with open hearts and made this world record happen. I will be forever grateful to them for that,” Alenka Artnik wrote on her Instagram profile

Although this season has not been as everyone would have hoped, there have also been some bright spots. One of them is the new world record holder Artnik, who certainly hasn’t said her last word yet and will want to confirm her great form in the 2021 competition.
