AIDA annouced records

Thread Status: Hello , There was no answer in this thread for more than 60 days.
It can take a long time to get an up-to-date response or contact with relevant users.
So now I ask...

Martin Stepanek announced -96m,
and Herbet -94m , but Herberts attempt
is only after Martins.

What is the use then for Herbert to go for it ?

Surely he will change it, or can he ?

Hi is a good idea people going to constant weigth without fins.im happy with that....i have a question how is it that Herbert does 130 meter o something like that in pool without fins -and in the ocean it says 30 meter?..
It a goo mark to start

Ok 30 meter is good to for starting the unassisted...

but if you want to be efective in this -you have to concentrate in the especific tencnique you need for the unassited ..

One more question why the f R E E and the AIDA don't compet together in unassited..? IT will be good

The 30m on the aida page is not the last word spoken ;)

Wait for the attempt to happen - Herbert will of course do more than 30m

Greetings from Austria

It's great that interest in unassisted constant ballast increases. Any unassisted attempt past -30mt deserves attention, that's for sure. However it would be hypocrisy to pretend the current World Records conducted by F.R.E.E don't exist.

Honesty and regard for other people's performances should be the chief element of any athletic activity.

Let's applaude all the athlethes for doing what they announced, but the results shouldn't be labelled as world records IMHO.

I am with you with that. They should not call it "Worl Records".
