Two-time World Record Holder
Wellington freediver Dave Mullins has set a new world record by swimming 244m underwater in a single breath. The 26-year-old broke his own record of two days prior by 18m during an international competition held at Wellington’s Naenae pool. The swim took 4:02 minutes to complete and covered nearly five lengths of the 50m pool. Mullins also holds a world record in spearfishing, for shooting the largest ever striped marlin in 2004.
