Mateusz Malina broke another world record!

 

Mateusz Malina

 

We are happy to announce that our ambassador, Mateusz Malina has set another world record, during the 2019 CMAS Freediving Indoor European Championship that was held in Istanbul, Turkey. In the competition dynamics in the fins (DYN), the Pole reached a distance of 316 meters.

Mateusz Malina is one of the most decorated DYN divers in the world. After three days of the tournament, he won three medals in all colors. On the first day in the competition without fins - DNF, he won silver. He expected it to be a winning distance, but during the last competition, Frenchman Guillaume Bourdil set a new world record and won the gold medal with a fantastic performance. On the second day of the championships, he won a bronze medal in statics (STA). On the last day of the tournament, it was time for the DYN category, which gave Matt a gold medal and a new world record.

As he says about his record in DYN:

“I couldn’t dream about this result many years ago but hard work, dedication, countless sacrifices, constantly digging into and questioning current methods of training, lots and lots of patience, infinite curiousness of discovering human body limits made this dream become a reality. This is not the end of the road. This is just the beginning of new era in pool freediving. Dive safe and enjoy the blue. Now the depth season starts for me!”
