British diver Paul Henson has set a new Guinness World Record for releasing ring-shaped air bubbles underwater. It may not be the most spectacular or demanding of diving records, but the number of 66 air rings released in one breath must be impressive and is not possible to achieve without training.

Especially when you consider that the previous record held by Australian Jakc Blomeley was “only” 47 rings. Paul, following advice from the Guinness World Records office, had to perform the attempt under similar conditions to the Australian, including choosing one of the public swimming pools.

[blockquote style=”2″]”I am 55 years old and overweight. I have never done freediving and have only done some snoorklowing. However, I have the ability to let go a lot of very thin rings of air underwater. So I decided to try and take my chance.” – recounted the newly crowned record holder afterwards[/blockquote].

Paul Henson decided that he would only do one attempt and did not intend to screw the record down too far as he hoped that there would be other takers with whom he could compete in future attempts.

In the presence of his two-person support – a camera operator and a witness – and two independent witnesses required for procedural reasons, the Brit took up position at the bottom of the pool and the trial could begin.

[blockquote style=”2″]”I released the first ring, but to my despair it disintegrated halfway! The thought ran through my head that it was all over and the whole attempt would end in disaster, moreover captured on tape! Waiting for the air bubbles from the broken ring to reach the surface seemed to take ages. However, in that time I managed to regain my resolve, clear my mind and release another 66 perfect rings.” – reported an exasperated Paul Henson.[/blockquote]

When asked for advice for those wishing to take on the challenge, the new record holder stressed that it was particularly important to have someone to watch over you during training. On top of that, you need to practice making the smallest rings possible so that the number of rings is as high as possible.

[blockquote style=”2″]”Just letting the rings go isn’t too hard, as my wife says – any idiot can do it,” – concluded Henson[/blockquote].
