We have breaking news from Poland where Magdalena Solich-Talanda has set a new Polish Freediving National Record of 200m in Dynamic No Fins (DNF) at the Mazovia MiniComp 2018.
Whilst this is only a National Record due to the level of judges at the event, this performance beats the current World Record that Solich-Talanda herself set at 191m in July 2017.

Solich-Talanda had this to say to DeeperBlue.com:
“It was just a controlled start to check my form before the Belgrade World Championships. At 170m I felt really good and I knew that I can do more”
When asked about what it feels like being the first woman in competitive history to hit 200m in DNF, she had this to say:
“It is a wonderful feeling and for me, it seems like I have done something really big! Now I have strong desire to do more!”
