Stig Severinsen sets a new Guinness record! – video

Danish freediver Stig Severinsen has decided to remind himself once again, and that can only mean one thing – a new Guinness World Record for breath-holding!

This time, the popular freediver visited Mexico, where he set the best result in the dynamic fins competition. Everything took place in the Dane’s favourite conditions, i.e. in open waters, although it should be noted that this time the temperature was much higher, as so far he has chosen rather frosty waters of Scandinavia.

Nevertheless, the warm water in the Mexican resort of La Paz in Baja clearly appealed to the athlete and he easily covered the 202-metre distance in a mono fin! This result allowed him to beat the previous record (Venezuelan Carlos Costa 177 m, 2016) by as much as 25 metres in great style.

Stig Severinson is a well-known figure in the freediving world. For years, he has been taking on unusual challenges, such as breaking freediving records under ice. The Dane is not an active competitor, as he is already 48 years old, but his passion and love for freediving could be the envy of many younger colleagues.

Severinson’s result was no coincidence. The record was set under the “2020 Dive” and the goal was to reach a distance of 202.0 metres, so that the wild and challenging passing year could end on a positive note.

It’s amazing to see so many people inspired by this dive, and that’s why it’s important to set goals and make your dreams come true! – said a delighted Severinsen
