Tsjeggiese vryduiker breek ys-swem-wêreldrekord

Die Tsjeggiese vryduiker David Vencl het amper geswem 81 meter (265.75 ft) onder die ys op Dinsdag, die wêreldrekord te breek nadat hulle die ysige water getrotseer het, met slegs 'n swembroek aan.

“Dit sal regkom,” Vencl said after emerging from his minute-and-half swim in water measured at temperatures of 3 degrees Celsius and pumping his fist in celebration.
The 38-year-old changed the location for the record attempt to a former quarry in Lahost, 100 kilometres north-west of Prague, from a glacial lake in Austria due to COVID restrictions which made international travel difficult.
Vencl, who dropped into the water through one hole cut in the one-foot-thick ice before emerging from another, beat the previous record of 250 feet set by Denmark’s Stig Avall Severinsen in October, 2017 in southern Greenland.
