Mmm... Freediving
Jan 12, 2004
If you go to AIDA's website:


You'll see the following under "Static Discipline":

>>> NEW WR >>> Stéphane MIFSUD 8'24" 08/11/2003 and then "AIDA Recognition in progress"

If this occured back in August 2003 what is taking so long to recognize it ? Was there a problem with the attempt ? Is it the world record or not ? AIDA ?

Smellsfishy :confused:
Ok, this has to be a joke post. With a name like "Smellsfishy" and a post wondering about what makes AIDA tick, you must be trying to make some kind of statement;).
It was actually meant as a serious post. I'm not trying to stir up more controversy. I think freediving has more than its share of controversy.

Can anybody from AIDA answer this ?


AIDA Record page updated

The AIDA record page has now marked Stéphane MIFSUD 8'24" "NOT VALID"

Does anybody know the story behind this ?
