VIDEO: Czech Freediver Sets World Record

Alena Konečná dove to 60m over 3:00 minutes underwater without breathing equipment in last week’s freediving championships in Turkey

At the 2nd annual CMAS Apnea World Championship Outdoor, held from October 2-9 off the coast of Antalya, Turkey, Czech diver Alena Konečná accomplished a special feat. 

During the freediving championships, in which divers attempt to reach the lowest depths possible without the aid of breathing equipment, Konečná took home a gold medal in the category of No Fins with a 60-meter dive.



The dive is also being called a new world record in the Women’s Constant No Fins category. 

Video from Diveye Freediving, which uses a special underwater drone to capture footage of the divers in action, caught the record-setting dive. 

Just don’t hold your breath in an attempt to match Konečná’s feat while watching:

Konečná also won silver medals in the Constant Bi Fins and Constant Weight disciplines, with 70-meter and 85-meter dives, respectively.
