The profiles show an ascent speed of almost 3m/s - incredible. I wonder if he plans to slow down on the last 5m only on the 200m dive as well? :ko

For his 150m dives Umberto descended at 3m/s, but ascended slower and completed the last 40m or so FI

Check out www.patrickmusimu.com/QA.html !

According to Patrick he has already done 200 in training. He's got some amazing things prepaired for the attempt, I'm looking very much forward to the 200m documentry and films of training etc.!

Go Patrick go!

Love, peace and water!

Best of luck to him, i heard that after -100, there is no way to equal the ears. The diver is sleeping and forgetting to equalize the ears. ı hope he can do or pipin. Man can do what man want to do.

I can see where Kars may have misunderstood:

Last Paragraph: "I have NEVER attempted a record that I did not already achieve during training!" Later in the same paragraph: "If everything goes to plan, I will have reached the 200m before the record day."

So he is hoping to reach the 200 meters in training before the record day, but hasn't done so already.

Hi Sedate,

What you say is not correct, the diver can equalize after 100m. I think that Patrick floods his sinuses which means he does not need to equalize anyway. I think many of the record divers reach recor depths prior to the record day. But as we have seen on many occassions doing a world record on the day set out with all the media, judges, pressure etc takes something extra and not everyone can do it.

Sorry guys I mis interperted Patricks words.
But I still think he can pull it off, he has done previous WR's so he knows about stress and how to handle it.
Generating al this publicity is really something, I hope Patrick's message gets through in the articles unaltered unspinned to fit 'the hero type figure'. Which is generally portraid in newspapers as a daring persistand and little naive lone soul putting his life on the scale for a 15 minutes of fame, and his name in the historybooks.

I rather see record holders as pioneers who advance techniques, discover them and display their mental growth into the depths of the ocean. Whom we can learn a lot.
Manny records give us new valuable insights, like Enzo's , Mayol, Pipin, Umberto, loic, Carlos, Martin, Tanya, Anabel, Herbert, Peter, Stig, Tom, etc, etc did.

I thank everyone for their contribution!

Hi paul,
Let me try to explain what my idea is; as you know Loic leferme(Franso) did -162m in 2002, following the years in oct, 2004 he did -171m.(in ''No limits'' catogoary)
Patric musumi march, sept, 2004 just did -87(Constant). max dept his body suffered with -120m(variale).He is record is -120m as far as i know paul. From -120 meter to -200 meter, there is -80m and also there billion tons over you and millions of questions need to reply and also there is a word called ''-200meters''.
Your idea paul., is it easy to jump bottom of a stairs to eight steps up?
if i have any mistake, please correct me!.

I was just thinking....

If Loïc and Tanya can do 170 ich with packing but no sinuses flooding
and Pipin and Audrey, 170 ich without packing but with sinuses flooding

Then why someone would not be able to go to 200 m with packing and sinuses flooding ?

the system he uses must be amazing -very fast- have a close look at the profile

http://www.patrickmusimu.com/TUD.html

a) time air filling of the lift device at depth
b) ascent speed
very interesting... maybe the key for success...

I wonder if he is getting tested for silent bubbles at all - that looks like a really fast ascent from such a depth - must be a danger of DCS surely? After Benjamin Franz' experience I am very surprised anyone is taking such risks. Does Patrick talk about DCS avoidance anywhere? Is he training every day? I haven't seen anything on his site.

Whatever, I wish him luck. I made my first ever freedives with Patrick and he caught me at 12m on my first ever blackout.... a big inspiration to me!

Deepest Bear wants to go out there and ride that sled! is any one heading out there soon?

Respect for 136m in 8 Days... I wonder how his thorax/lungs are doing?
Good luck to him for the upcoming dives! :wave

He is far from his goal by now .....
The objective doesn't seem to be realistic.....
I think the progress in freediving has to be quiet slow (at depth) otherwise your body doesn't have the 'time' to adapt.

he's gonna do it... :)

it looks like a dive to 200m will take him around 3'00"... not that long considering the depth.
