Hey Carlos, brilliant. Congrats !!

It's a special number for sure. Whatever happens from here, and wherever the record goes, only one person will ever be able to say " I was the man who broke the 100 m barrier..."

Like the first 4-minute mile. Very few can name the current record holder of the mile, but most people know Roger Bannister was the first to break 4 mins !! :king

Not only is Carlos the first to 100m, but he was also the first to 90m. Thus, he joins Pelizzari as the only diver to every break two milestones in constant weight. Pelizzari was the first to 70m & 80m. Maiorca was first to 60m, Makula to 50m:

1977 Stefano Makula 50m
1981 Enzo Maiorca 60m
1992 Umberto Pelizzari 70m
1999 Umberto Pelizzari 80m
2002 Carlos Coste 90m
2004 Carlos Coste >100m (102m)

This is also the first time that the milestone was jumped right over.

The longest jump was 11 years to go from 60m to 70m!

Unfortunately Guillaume Nery has a habit of going for a record at the wrong time--his recent 96m record is obviously overshadowed by the Cyprus event.

You also have to hand it to Herbert--he is the only one of the really deep guys who actually has to plug his nose to equalize like the rest of us! To my knowledge, Martin, Carlos and maybe even Guillaume all equalize hands free.

Thank You Eric for letting us know Herbert -still- needs that too!

I whish I can do handsfree this year, it would be really liberating I think to any freediver. I just whished I was and am right there in Cyprus, I can breathe the atmosphere through the stories, I feel like I can do PB static right now, I should anker myself to earth or I will take off.... dreaming away....

Thanks mate!

Kars.

*no I'm not on drugs, I never have used them, and I don't whish to, reading DB does make me very happy like being deep down there!*

Congratulations!

Congratulations to Carlos for passing a historic milestone in freediving.

Congratulations to the three deepest competitors, namely to Carlos, to Martin and to Herbert. I am firmly believing that all three of them have reached the "three digit zone" in training, and it is counting a lot to me what people do in training!

Here is a table with some preliminary results.

Observing this table there arises one question: Should Martin's accomplishment not also be accredited to him as a world record? If I get the chronology right, he dove to -98m at Top Time 9:00, thus exceeding Guillaumes recent record by 2 Meters. Then Carlos followed at Top Time 9:05 doing his incredible 102 Meters. Unless the order was rearranged I don't see a reason why Martin's 98 Meters should not also be considered as a WR. Is there a minimum amount of time to be placed between two performances of let's say 24 hours? Does anyone know the details?

Congratulations also to Wolle - awesome!

@erasmuspaxi: Greetings from Vienna, how are You? Just drop me a line!

Have safe and pleasant dives

Gerald,

Regarding Martin. I am no expert on the rules but i'm pretty sure he has to return to the surface with a tag for the result to be valid. Since Martin's tag was at 103m and he only made 98m his record would not be recognised as a new WR - although it was a tremendous dive in it's own right!

Thanks to Emma for covering the highlights. Does anyone know of a site that is publishing the results from Cyprus? The dynamic numbers were up for a few days but nothing now.
Aloha

I tried that Eric, URL not found. http://freediver.co.uk/foc2004/results.htm works. I guess it's just a left hand computer in a right world, but sometimes it's hard not to be paranoid and just because I'm paranoid that doesn't mean that someone isn't out to get me. Thanks guys. I owe you one Stephan.
Aloha

LOL Bill, nice lines :)

In most places your a rebel when they call you 'left' :p it's almost like one is not normal being not paranoid when being left. Uhm I hope my English isn't grow into a unsolvable knot here ;)

English is fine Kars. Don't think that I congratulated you on your performance last month. 'Under fire' too. What was it, a half a point? Competition doesn't get any tougher than that. Way to go.
Aloha

Thanks,
