March 2, 2020 – On Sunday, Boris Milosic, a member of the Split Diving Club, broke the world record for walking underwater at the Marina Kastela pool!

Namely, Boris is the first man to walk 100 meters underwater and thus enter the Guinness Book of Records, while he also set a world record for diving a year ago in Serbia.

Before the competition, Dalmacija Danas asked Boris how he felt.

“I am very excited, today I will try to set the world record currently held by a Turkish diver, which is 80 meters. Physically all this is not difficult, I need to focus more mentally on what I do. I have to go to my zen zone.

Is it harder to dive or walk underwater?

“It’s harder to walk than to dive because you carry more resistance. One leg must always be at the bottom and the whole body must be underwater.”

Why did Boris choose diving?

“I was born in Austria and at the age of 18, moved to Split. My parents had a weekend house in Rogoznica and we spent every summer there, so I fell in love with the sea at the age of 7. And from then on, I somehow decided that I was going to start diving,” said Boris, who then took a few minutes for mental preparation and set out to break the world record.

After breaking the world record, Boris was visibly thrilled:

“I thank everyone who supported me, my family, my coach, and my sponsors. I’m so excited,” he said.

Boris Milosic is a 23-year member of the Split Diving Club. He was first in the public eye exactly a year ago, when he set a world record for diving in the Bi-Fin discipline in Serbia.

TCN wrote about Boris’ venture on Saturday.

“The rule is that the body must be completely underwater and you must walk in the pool for as long as possible. One foot always has to touch the floor, and when walking, I have to watch the buoyancy of the body. Currently, the record is 79 meters, and I intend to become the first person to walk 100 meters underwater,” Boris Milosic said about making history on Sunday.

“Breathing is a mentally demanding sport. This is a pretty difficult discipline. There are dynamic disciplines where you are moving and static disciplines where you are not. This is something in between,” Boris added.

He will try to complete the venture in less than four minutes.

“I don’t think a person who is not into diving can cross half a pool. I’ll try to make it in less than four minutes, and if I enjoy it too much, it might be over four minutes – it will be ambitious for us.”
