New world record in Dynamic Apnea with Fins

Post Number:#1  Postby Mephisto the Heretic » Mon Nov 19, 2007 10:36 pm

Dave Mullins from New Zeeland is the new record holder. 244 meter is the NEW WORLD RECORD in Dynamic and it's 18 meter longer than his old record. This fantastic swim was done in Wellington, NZL

Total dive time: 4'02"

CONGRATULATIONS DAVE!!!

This is a video of his run:

If you want to see the difference in technique, please compare him to the first 200 meter barrier breaker, mister peter pederson of denmark.

yup, the glide it suppose to save the consuption of O2. new technique i must say, did not expect it to be practice in dynamic with fins, it is usualy practice by competitors in dynamic no fins using the breast stroke.

Now it looks like the 300m barrier is in sight of these monofinners.
