    Polish Freediver Sets New Record: Swims Over 100 Meters Under Ice on a Single Breath

    Polish freediver Stanisław Odbieżałek has once again rewritten the record books by covering an astonishing 110 meters beneath a layer of ice without taking a breath. This remarkable achievement occurred during his quest to surpass the Guinness World Record in freediving, a sport defined by its reliance on breath-holding and underwater exploration.

    Odbieżałek accomplished this extraordinary feat in the icy waters of Lake Mysutjernet, situated in Norway’s southern Kongsberg region. Despite facing daunting conditions, including subzero temperatures and the absence of protective diving equipment, the Polish athlete remained resolute in his pursuit of excellence.
