A 40-year-old freediver from Slovenia conducted her stunning plunge in Kas, Turkey. As a result, she managed to reach a depth of 106 metres and set a new world record in the constant weight double fin competition(CWT Bifins).

Interestingly, Artnik’s previous personal record was also a world record for some time. However, during the Vertical Blue 2021 competition it was taken from her by Frenchwoman Alice Modolo, who dived to a depth of 95m. In turn, just before Artnik’s attempt, Italian Alessia Zecchini dived to 105m and took over the record. However, just one day later, a great performance by the Slovenian allowed her to regain the world record. Artnik thus confirmed that the upcoming world championships will be extremely exciting.

The whole dive was a bit of a rollercoaster. Although everything went according to the regulations, I wasn’t entirely happy with my dive. We were also 50 minutes late, which always causes extra stress. Even more so when you are preparing to dive for a world record. Fortunately, I managed to stay calm and everything ended well. – Alenka Artnik said.

Alenka Artnik has had a particularly successful competition Vertical Blue 2021 in the Bahamas. After finishing the competition she took a little break and then started preparing for the CMAS World Championships. As you can see, the freediver is in great shape and will certainly want to prove it during her upcoming performances.

I would like to congratulate Alessi Zecchini on her performance on the previous day and of course everyone who took part in this competition. Now we will all rest a bit and in a few days the world championships will start. I wish everyone good luck, calm seas and beautiful dives. – concluded Artnik.

My love for scuba diving started as a 12-year-old in the Canary Islands, at which time I took my first Open Water Diver course. This love for the blue turned into a huge passion that accompanies me to this day. Although blue is hard to come by in the Baltic, no conditions are terrible for me. In this sport, I find peace, patience, courage, focus, and balance. I have recently started to engage in underwater modeling and I am fulfilled with this.
