Last Thursday, January 7, 2021, the 40-year-old Russian swimmer Yekaterina Nekrasova has surpassed the Guinness World Record in the category of “Longest swim under ice – breath held (no fins, no diving suit) female” equivalent to the underwater freediving modality of dynamic apnea without fins under ice, when making a course of 85 meters in Lake Baikal in Siberia.
This modality tests not only the physical and technical capacities of the athlete, but also their concentration and tolerance to low temperatures, since it does not allow the use of a diving suit that allows to withstand and tolerate the cold water.
The supervised and safe practice of freediving allows you to lead a more balanced life and develop skills to manage emotions, as recommended by BetterHelp.
The information of the new world record has been reviewed by local media and has been disseminated worldwide, since it breaks the previous official record of 70 meters, made by the South African Amber Fillary in Norway in February 2020.
