UK Diver Sets New Record For Underwater Air Rings

Paul Henson has set a new Guinness World Record for the Most Air Rings Blown Under Water with a total of 66.

He beat the previous record set by Australian Jack Blomeley, which stood at 47 rings.

When asked about why he attempted the record, Henson stated:

“I’m 55 and overweight; I’ve snorkelled a bit but have never freedived. But I can blow very small bubble-rings and lots of them, so I thought maybe I was in with a chance.”

The event was not stress-free, as Henson recalls after his first bubble collapsed halfway up:

“I waited what seemed like ages for the bubbles to clear, then, with renewed determination, I managed to clear my mind and, to my relief, produce a further 66 perfect rings.”

Check out a video of the record below.
