VIDEO: Nanja van den Broek World Record Dive

On October 18th, Nanja van den Broek of the Netherlands set a new world record in the freediving discipline of Variable Weight (VWT) with a successful sled dive down to 130 meters in the clear blue Egyptian waters of Sharm El Sheikh, and a self-propelled ascent back up to the surface in just three minutes time. Having a world record under her belt is a terrific early birthday present for the Dutchwoman, who will turn 40 in November.

Nanja had this to say about her dive.

“Yes it’s really nerve racking, a world record — you can prepare everything but when the moment arrives you think ‘My God what’s going on?!’ and you have to close off completely.”
