Turkish Freediver Breaks Guinness World Record For Longest Underwater Walk


Turkish freediver Bilge Clingigiray recently broke the Guinness World Record for the longest underwater walk with one breath.

Clingigiray, who two years ago had set the women’s world record with a 67.16-meter (220.34-foot) walk only to shortly thereafter have it surpassed by Marina Kazankova of Russia, this month set a new world record with a walk of 81.6 meters (267.7 feet), surpassing even the men’s mark of 79.94 meters (262.3 feet).

Clingigiray accomplished her feat at the Agaoglu My World Club swimming pool in Istanbul, Turkey on September 13th.

Check out the video of her record-breaking walk below.
