Anette Rafen Ottzen Sets New Danish Freediving National Record


It seems lately not a week goes by without new freediving records being set, as athletes the world over continuously push the envelope in a ongoing race to test their limits.

Performing at the Bellahøj Svømmestadion in Denmark on 6th May 2016 – Anette Rafen Ottzen just bettered her own previous record of 189m in Dynamic Apnea (DYN) with a clean and solid 200m performance.

This new Danish national record is also the new Nordic record.

The athlete recapped her performance in a Facebook post saying:

“Surround yourself with people that support you when things don’t go entirely your way – that’s where the magic happens. I almost didn’t accept the re-dive that I was offered due to count down technicalities. But decided to give it a second chance: I was at my home pool surrounded by trainers, teammates, friends and of course my boyfriend was there too. So I managed to let go of all the expectations that I had brought to the poolside and just dove for the sake of freediving.”
