Freediving world record DNF Johanna Nordblad

Before the dive I felt more nervous than usual. Because of the pandemic all the pools are closed and I could not train regularly. – Nordblad said in a telephone interview with AFP.

Recently, the World Confederation of Underwater Sports – CMAS has taken over the measurement of records in ice freediving. Until recently, they were documented by the Guinness World Records office. This is quite an interesting situation, especially when we look at the previous record in this competition. The result 102.7m by Ekaterina Nekkrasova 2 weeks earlier – on 6 March 2021 was still under Guinness.
