South African freediver Amber Fillary has set a new Guinness World Record, plunging into ice-capped waters wearing nothing but a bikini. She reached her goal on Saturday with no flippers to assist her. Fillary, originally from Cape Town, held the previous world record of 70 meters.
Fillary dove through a man-made triangular hole in the 40 centimetre thick ice and into the less than balmy 1°C water in Mysutjern, south of Kongsberg in Norway. Two minutes and 25 seconds later, she emerged 90 meters away, and the new world apnea record was hers.
