New Freediving World Record Set by Andreas Güldner

Andreas Güldner started freediving in an early age making him the youngest competitive Freediver in the world. He mainly trained in the pools but his orientation changed quickly when he traveled to Dahab's Red Sea for the first time in 2005. 9 years later, Andreas comes back to where it all started to break Herbert Nitsch‘s skandalopetra freediving world record with a 112-meter dive.

Nitsch, an Austrian freediver who has held world records in all of the eight freediving disciplines, held the previous record at 107 meters. Andreas Güldner of Germany broke his record at ‘Panorama Reef’ in Soma Bay on June 26th 2014. Skandalopetra diving dates back to ancient Greece where it was used by sponge fishermen. It consists of a variable ballast dive with no fins using a flat, hydrodynamic stone weighing between 8 and 14kg. Güldner used one that weighed 11kg. Watch Andreas's amazing performance.
