Czech free-diver breaks ice-swim world record

“This will likely do,” Vencl mentioned after rising from his minute-and-half swim in water measured at temperatures of three levels Celsius and pumping his fist in birthday celebration.

The 38-year-old modified the site for the file try to a former quarry in Lahost, 100 kilometres north-west of Prague, from a glacial lake in Austria because of COVID restrictions which made global shuttle tricky.

Vencl, who dropped into the water via one hollow reduce within the one-foot-thick ice prior to rising from every other, beat the former file of 250 toes set through Denmark’s Stig Avall Severinsen in October, 2017 in southern Greenland.
