Freediving Michele Tomasi to attempt Guinness World Record under ice

Michele Tomasi to attempt Guinness World Record under ice

-

On Sunday 12th February 2012, freediver Michele Tomasi will attempt to break the current Guinness record of swimming a distance under ice.

This dynamic apnea attempt will take place at Lago Santo in Val Cembra (Trento – Italy), where Tomasi will swim under the ice, using a monofin.

Just two holes will be be cut throught the frozen surface of the lake at a distance greater than the previous record. The thickness of the ice has to be at least 30 cm for this attempt.

The current record is held by Turkish freediver Sahika Ercümen, an International Apnea Academy Instructor, who did 110 meters in February 2011, in the Waissense lake in Austria.  The athlete started from a hole dug in the 40cm thick ice, and re-emerged through another hole 110m away. She broke the record 110m in 2 min 20 sec.

More on Tomasi’s record attempt can be read on the Rane Neri website.
