Russian freediver Alexey Molchanov this past weekend set a new freediving world record in the Constant Weight (CWT) Bifins discipline.
Molchanov successfully dove to 111 meters (364 feet) during the International Adriatic Freediving Competition in the waters off Croatia.
He surpassed his previous record by one meter (3.28 feet).
Molchanov’s record dive was recognized by both the International Association for the Development of Apnea (AIDA) and the World Underwater Federation (CMAS).

He first got the diving bug while in High School in Cairo, Egypt, where he earned his PADI Open Water Diver certification in the Red Sea off the Sinai Peninsula. Since then, John has dived in a volcanic lake in Guatemala, among white-tipped sharks off the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, and other places including a pool in Las Vegas helping to break the world record for the largest underwater press conference.
