It's awesome, it's scary. I really hope he makes it and that nothing happens to him.

I train with Carlos here in my home country of venezuela and I don't think he'll try the NL record... maybe if he's feeling way too good but I would dare say he'll give a go at the Variable Weight record, last sunday he made 130m on training.

Well, you're wrong... Patrick has already been to 209 meters some weeks ago... I think you missed some news.

Hi Jorg
I think polorutz is refering to Carlos Coste.
I wish him good trainings. I think He'll take back the VW world record.

I really hope he does... When august comes we'll see, by the way, musimu claims to have broken 209 on NL but really I don't think that's the WR as long as it's not endorsed by AIDA... To me the record still stands at 171m with Leferme as it's maker. Im' sure that to many competitive freedivers the record that musimu made is hardly believable, I mean, if you were going to make the dive why couldn't you just bring a couple of AIDA judges with you?

This has been discussed to death in this thread:
[ame="http://forums.deeperblue.net/showthread.php?goto=newpost&t=60688"]200m deep down - Page 23[/ame]

The 209m dive is very real, whether you want to accept it as a WR or not is up to you.

Eventhough it has been discussed to death, I totally agree with Polorutz!

NOTHING is a WR unless it is done within AIDA. This is not to mark the performance of Patrick, but since he didn´t invite AIDA he can not claim the WR. There are certain procedures that we have to follow. -For instance the dopingcontrol. And I´m NOT accusing Patrick for using doping!!! But this is just one of the things...
I think that he made a BIG mistake by not inviting AIDA...

Just my opinion...

Even by his OWN standards Patrick did not set a WR - he set a date for a record attempt and then forfeited on the day of the attempt.
The idea of touting a training performance as a WR is ridiculous for ANY sport.

However AIDA doesn't have a monopoly on homologation of records - they just happen to be the most recognised organisation that's doing it...
