Four Freediving world records were set this past weekend at the Croatian Pool Freediving National Championships in Sisak, Croatia.

Vanja Peles broke the men’s CMAS world record in the Dynamic No Fins (DNF) freediving discipline with a 220-meter (722-foot) swim, and Budimir Buda Sobat set a new Guinness world record for his 24-minute, 33-second, oxygen-assisted static breath-hold.
