The Venezuelan freediver Carlos Coste implanted her second world record in less than 4 days, when on Sunday 6 of October of 2002, in Puerto Cruz's town, in the Venezuelan coast, he carried out a descent of -93 mts of depth in the modality of free immersion.

Carlos overcame the previous record that had the Austrian Herbert Nitsch with a mark of -92 mts at one time approximate of 3 minutes and 55 seconds, where he had to contain the breathing, to be able to descend until the plate located to the -92 meters deep, to play it and then to ascend with the only help of his arms, which impelled it through a rope located vertically during the whole journey.

3 days before, Carlos had broken the world record in the modality constant weight, when with the help of his monofin it achieved the -90 mts of depth, 3 more that the registration previous of the French Guillame Neury.
The world record was witnessed and endorsed by 2 international judges AIDA, Dietter Baunman (Austria) and Marlene Ospina (Colombia) it was confirmed minutes after Carlos emerged of the depths, when after verifying the perfect physical and mental state of the freediver they gave the sign of OK to endorse the intent like valid. Some few hours after the intent and after revising the videos, the judges ratified the new world record officially.

Carlos Coste affirmed, minutes after his immersion of -90 meters that he felt a lot but comfortable in this intent that when it broke the record in apnea in constant weight.

The event was witnessed by a numerous public that so much inside of, like outside of the water it was offering its support to the athlete that for second occasion in oneself week it placed the name of Venezuela in the highest thing (or in this case: in the deepest thing) of the elite of the Apnea in the world

Congratulations to Carlos Coste, 90 m is something really great, fantastic. Congratulations to all Venezuelans freedivers.

I have seen today de AIDA web page: http://membres.lycos.fr/aidafrance/AIDA/Tableau.htm

1) Today Monday 06- 11 -02 the current cw world record is Herbert’s record 86 m. Nobody has updated the records list. After 4 days Carlos Coste name do not appear on the AIDA web page. AIDA judges Dieter Baunman of Austria and Marlene Ospina of Colombia was there monitoring the event. Let’s see how much time they need to updated the list.

2) I have read at deeper blue “breaking news”:

“The Venezuelan freediver Carlos Coste, descended -90m of depth in Apnea Constant Weight to overcome the previous registration that was in being able to of the French freediver Guillaume Nery”

I can not see Guillaume Nery´s name in the records list of the AIDA. Was Guillaume Nery´s record official or unofficial? If it was unofficial why to mention that Carlos Coste has break Guillaume Nery´s record. If it was official why his record doesn’t appear at AIDA list?


Maybe AIDA´s site webmaster is too busy to update the list... a bad feeling isn´t it?
