Croatia’s Mirela Kardasevic, Vitomir Maricic Set CMAS World Pool Freediving Records

Two Croatian freedivers set new women’s and men’s CMAS world records this past weekend during their country’s pool freediving national championships.

Mirela Kardasevic swam 180 meters (587 feet) in the Dynamic No Fins (DNF) discipline, and 226 meters (741 feet) in the Dynamic with Bi-Fins (DYN) discipline.

According to a post on her Facebook page:

“Croatian nationals are over, and for this phase of training I am more than happy with the results. I came to this competition with no expectations and my goal was to enjoy my dives as much as I could :)… Now few days of rest and then I will continue preparations for European Championship in June.”

Additionally, Vitomir Maricic set a Men’s CMAS record in the DYN with Bi-fins discipline with a 264.7-meter (868-foot) swim.
