Petar Klovar sets new FIM world record at CMAS World Championships

Croatian freediver Petar Klovar set a new world record in the competition with Free Immersion – FIM – during the World Championships in Turkey.

The CMAS Freediving Outdoor World Championship 2022 in Kaş, Turkey, was full of many special moments. One of them was certainly the dive performed by Croatian freediver Petar Klovar. The athlete plunged to a depth of 132 meters, with which he not only won the competition, but also set a new world record.

Petar Klovar the surprise of the competition

The Croatian gave a real show off and made a dive of 4 minutes and 1 second to a depth of 132 meters. As he himself admitted, this result is no accident. To be able to enjoy the victory and the new world record, the athlete from the Balkans worked hard on his form.

We prepared for the competition all year, we really gave it our all. We invested a lot of time, a lot of money, effort, everything. We had a lot of support from friends and family – Petar Klovar said in an interview with Kanal Ri.

CMAS Freediving Outdoor World Championship 2022

In Turkey, at the CMAS Freediving Outdoor World Championship 2022, more than 140 athletes competed and, of course, there were Poles among them. Mateusz Malina took second place and won a silver medal in the FIM competition. The Polish competitor declared a depth of 121 m, but only reached a depth of 112 m, which resulted in a yellow card. Third places ex aequo went to Guillaume Bourdila and Vitomir Maricic, who reached a depth of 110 m.

Tomasz Uflewski also recorded a great performance. The Pole competing in the masters age category reached a depth of 61 meters and won a bronze medal.

On the next day of the competition, Petar Klovar again showed off. The Croatian dived to a depth of 94m and took first place in the competition of fixed ballast without fins – CNF. Second again was Pole Mateusz Malina, who reached a depth of 87m, and third with a score of 79m was the young Italian competitor Antonio Mogavero.
