A woman swam 90 meters under the ice and got into the Guinness Book of Records

(ORDO NEWS) — UPI: Amber Fillary from South Africa swam 90 meters under the ice and got into the Guinness Book of Records.

Amber Fillary from South Africa broke her own record by swimming 90 meters under the ice without fins or a wetsuit, and again got into the Guinness Book of Records. It is reported by UPI.

The athlete set a new world record for women on March 5 in the Norwegian city of Kongsberg in the south of the country. The previous achievement was set by Fillari in 2020. Then she swam 70 meters under the ice, holding her breath.

To break her own record, Fillari trained in Berlin, getting used to the icy water, and then in the lake near Kongsberg, where she achieved a new highest achievement. The woman admitted that she was very nervous before the record attempt, but everything went exactly as planned.

The African athlete also holds the record for the longest breath-holding walk underwater. She managed to go under water 109.6 meters.

Earlier it was reported that 35-year-old Victoria Evans from the UK crossed the Atlantic Ocean in a rowboat and set a new speed record. To overcome the distance of 4.7 thousand kilometers from the Canary Islands to Barbados by oars, it took her 40 days and 19 hours.
