Hi all,

Who knoves anything about K. Meyer and Topi Lintukangas record attempts? I didnt found any information...:(

All I know is that Topi should have attempted new WR in constant ballast no fins category in Nice during the last weekend. According to his own words there should have been some information regarding the attempt in www.suuntosports.com but at least I have not found anything.

We'll probably just have to be patient and keep waiting.
One of Topi's sponsors, RedBull Finland, reports that his attempts have failed.

According to information on www.redbull.fi (in Finnish only) Topi made two attempts to brake Herbert Nitsch's record of 66m. The first attempt was aborted at 58m due to equalizing problems - although Topi felt otherwise really good and relaxed on that dive. The second attempt was delayed since they needed to change the diving location. Topi states that he couldn't relax and concentrate properly, which ruined the second attempt. When asked about possible new attemps to gain the WR, Topi said that it remains to be seen.

Anyway, my congratulations to Topi for his great effort!

BTW, Topi's record attempts were filmed and will be included in a freediving documentary film (which will be released next spring).
Even though not successful, a world record attempt is always intresting to hear about. I wish there where more details.

This makes Stig Severinsens job more easy.
Last week of octobre he will attempt to break Herberts 66 meter.

It looks like this will be the last (for now) of a series of attempts.
David, Wolle, Herbert, Topi, Stig.

Carlos will also make an attempt but he is mainly focused on 133 meters VWT.
