9 November 2014 Brno, Czech Republic
Experienced diver Mateusz Malina of Krakow, Poland achieved a long-time goal of being a World Record diver. In a time of 4:27, he swam underwater for 226m . He surfaced with a very strong protocol and received a well-deserved white card from the judges.
Since 2012 Matt had been training all disciplines, except static, regularly. He trained pool several times a week and did exhale dives to maintain lung flexibility, once a week in a nearby quarry. In his opinion, this training achieved ‘modest results”. Then in July 2013 he “focused solely on DNF,FIM, and CNF” because he believes they are all connected. Matt said “It works pretty well for me” and it certainly seems that he is correct.
Congratulations and well done Matt!
