Aris Ioannidis Sets CMAS Masters Indoor Pool World Records


Greek freediver Aris Ioannidis recently set two CMAS World Records in the Masters age group at the Greek Pool Apnea Championships.

Ioannidis did a 6-minute, 30.82-second breath hold in the Static (STA) discipline and swam 150 meters (492 feet) in the Dynamic No Fins (DNF) discipline during the Freediving Indoor Greek Championship Open in Athens on October 25th.

Ioannidis wrote in a Facebook post:

“Thank you Just Apnea for the recognition, One Breath Freediving and Apnea Official Team for your support! Special thanks to Dimitris Koumoulos, Tasos Karabelas, Tolis Belos, Nikos Koukoulas, Jean Chabaud and all my buddies! We grow older but keep having fun :-)”
