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.”
