Earlier this week Konstantin Novikov of Russia set a new world record for a depth dive under the ice. On April 13th at the geographic North Pole of earth (exact coordinates of the dive: 89′ 59.556′) Konstantin Novikov made a dive under constant weight to 65 meters on breath-hold. Novikov’s CWT dive took two minutes and :12 seconds to complete.
The previous record belonged to a Croatian athlete named Christian Kuravicu, who achieved a sub-ice dive to 51m in 2005 near the ice camp Barneo, which at the time was South of the pole by more than a hundred kilometers.
Congratulations to Konstantin on this thrilling (and chilling!) achievement.
