South African freediver Amber Fillary has set up a crowdfunding page to pay for her training to break a Guinness World Record for the “longest underwater walk.”
Fillary hopes to surpass just under 90m/295ft, according to an entry in her blog, and the attempt is now set for November 28th, 2021.
She is also hoping to set a new world record for the longest under-ice swim on breath hold. That attempt is set for early next year in Norway, where Fillary will look to break her own world record of 229ft/69.8m with no fins, no weight belt, no wetsuit and under 34cm/13in of ice.
To donate to her campaign, go to makeachamp.com or check out her blog at amberfillary.com or follow her on Instagram.
