Comparing Apples to Oranges

If we are going to start announcing 'records' in training, then these 'records' should be compared to the TRAINING results of other divers. In that sense, Coste has not surpassed the 105m CW of Sebastien Murat (training) or the 97m FI of Nitsch (training).

When Coste's official results are in, then we can compare them to the 87m & 92m records.

Similarly, Nestor should compare his training results in dynamic to the 200m of Stepanek & Murat.

Murat did 105?!
Where? When?
BTW, I agree with Eric. It is good to know the progress of the Venezuelan freedivers in training sessions but we can't talk about surpassing the world records in training sessions! The conditions are uncomparable...
Never the less, it is good to be informed about what's on in the world of Apnea...
hi Eric

Please tell us about Seb Murats 105, id love to hear about it as he is australian. To me I believe that whatever someone has done in training and done it clean is a record. If Seb Murat did 105min training clean then to me that is the Wr, same as martin and the 200m dynamic. Of course these arn't judged by aida or whatever. But if the athlete has achieved it then he is the best.

Unofficial Records

Hi Eric and Freedivers friends.

Any moment i put in the previous note that this marks are offcial records. Mi intention was that all people can be informed about the development of Carlos on your world record aptempt.

Not 'records'


It is nice to hear about what's happening with the trainings, but these are not 'unofficial records', the unofficial records are much deeper! Maybe they are Venezuelan records, but don't call them unofficial world records.
