Croatian freediver Budimir Buda Šobat has set a new world record in statics. The athlete from the Balkans held his breath for a time of 24 minutes and 33 seconds! He thus broke his own Guinness World Record.

The 54-year-old freediver decided once again to take record attemptto support a good cause. The city of Sisak, where he set a new world record, was severely affected by the earthquake. With his feat, Budimir Buda Šobat supported fundraising for children in the region, which was hit by the disaster in December 2020.

The girl has been battling cerebral palsy, autism and epilepsy since birth. It was thanks to her that he believed he could set a new world record.

Behind the record

The athlete was under medical supervision at all times, and his feat was watched live by reporters and a crowd of fans. Before Budimir Buda Šobat set off for a new world record, he first had to prepare himself properly. The key was to breathe medical oxygen and saturate his body with it. It was thanks to this procedure that he was able to hold his breath for 24 minutes and 33 seconds.

However, oxygen alone is not enough. Reaching this level was possible thanks to many years of training. As he admits, he got to know and learned to control his body. Thanks to this, he is able to slow down some processes in the body. In particular, when it comes to pumping oxygenated blood to the brain.

The freediver said they occur after about 18 minutes spent underwater due to lack of oxygen. As a result, he is able to stay conscious and fight for a new world record.

Poland and the world

The current record in statics (STA) without the use of oxygen is 11 minutes and 25 seconds. It was set in 2009 by French freediver Stéphane Mifsud. The best of Polish freedivers – Mateusz Malina in 2019 – achieved a result of 10 minutes and 6 seconds.
