Mateusz Malina became the first Polish freediver to set a world record in a depth competition.
Who else but him? During the prestigious Vertical Blue competition in the Bahamas, Mateusz Malina confirmed that he is in life form. In the Free Immersion – FIM, he dived to a depth of 127 meters and won the competition. What’s more, he became the first Pole to set a world record in the depth competition.
With his performance on the last day of the VB, Matthew proved that he is not only the king of the pool competition, but that he belongs to the top of the world freediving in general. His result allowed him to beat the results of absolute legends such as Alexey Molchanov and William Trubridge.
It would certainly be hard to imagine a better place and circumstances to accomplish such a feat. As in the past, Molchanov (2018) and Trubridge (2016), Malina set his record during the Vertical Blue. These are prestigious competitions are held at the legendary Dean’s Blue Hole, which has been organized by absolute freediving icon William Trybridge since 2008. The competition in the Bahamas brings together the world’s top elite of the sport and provides an ideal opportunity to accomplish great things.
