Russian Women Freedivers Break Under-Ice Swimming, Breath-Hold Records

-

A pair of Russian women this past weekend broke two ice freediving records: one for swimming under the ice and another for static apnea, according to a post on the Russian Freediving Federation’s Facebook page.

On March 6, Ekaterina Nekrasova swam 102.7 meters (336.9 feet) under the ice without flippers or a wetsuit, breaking the previous 81-meter (265.75-foot) record set last month by Czech freediver David Vencl.

Additionally. on March 8, Maria Olshevskaya successfully held her breath in ice water for four minutes and 17 seconds.

Both feats have been submitted to Guinness World Records.
