It’s official: Marcel Korkuś with a Guinness record for diving 6395 m above sea level!

The formalities were fulfilled and Marcel Korkuś officially became a Guinness World Record holder for his dive conducted as part of the Ojos Diving Expedition 2019. The Pole, together with his Argentinian team, reached the lake located at the top of the Ojos del Salado volcano and then conducted a record-breaking dive.

We already informed about the success of Marcel and his team in December, but now we have the pleasure to announce the official confirmation of the record by Guinness World Records! The long road that our compatriot has gone through has finally led him to the desired goal and made one of his dreams come true. The question is what is Marcel Korkus planning to do next?

The Ojos Diving Expedition 2019 lasted 15 days. During this time, the team reached a lake situated at an altitude of 6395 m above sea level, located on the still active volcano Ojos del Salado – the second highest mountain in South America. The Pole was accompanied by a team of three Argentinians – Ulises Kusnezov, Martin Alderete and Eduardo Salas.

The expedition in late 2019, was another attempt to set a Guinness World Record. The first attempt took place in December 2016, unfortunately Marcel was stopped at 6200m by a sudden weather collapse.

Another ascent was carried out in February 2018, unfortunately due to health problems and deteriorating weather the expedition had to be discontinued. Fortunately, the old folk truths were again confirmed and three times lucky, and what goes around comes around!

On his way to the goal Marcel was supported, apart from the mentioned three Argentinian companions, by Garmin Polska and Eversub.
