Mirela Kardasevic Breaks Two World Records At Zagreb Open Cup


Croatian freediver Mirela Kardasevic this past weekend set two new pool freediving world records at the Zagreb Open Cup.

Kardasevic swam 272.7m/894.69ft in the Dynamic with monofin (DYN) discipline and 251.2m/824.15ft in the Dynamic with Bi-fins (DTNB) discipline, both under World Underwater Federation (CMAS) rules.

In a post on Instagram, Kardasevic wrote about her DYNB record:

“I have to admit that this WR brought me the most joy because after having tough last 2 weeks in the water and the feeling in the water was just off, today at the competition, the dive itself was one of the toughest dives I ever did (physically and mentally), so being able to achieve this WR despite all of that, made me very happy and proud.”
