Turkish freediver Sahika Ercumen recently broke the women’s Constant Weight No Fins (CNF) world record in freshwater freediving.
The record — 65 meters/213 feet — was set October 26th at Lake Salda in southwestern Turkey. The World Underwater Federation (CMAS) confirmed the feat.
Afterward, Ercumen told the press:
“I’m very happy. My goal was to draw attention to the preservation of Lake Salda.”
The 184-meter/604-foot-deep Lake Salda is Turkey’s deepest lake.
