Krzysztof Gajewski stood in the ice in swimming trunks only. Standing, he was freezing, and freezing, he broke a record. He lasted over three hours, risking hypothermia, experiencing claustrophobia, but ultimately – the hot joy of victory and beating the Guinness World Record for being in ice.
Krzysztof Gajewski stood in the ice in swimming trunks only. His goal was to break the Guinness World Record for being in the ice. Ultimately, he succeeded. “A little cold, a little tired, but happy,” he said after breaking the record.
The challenge was extremely difficult. A similar feat was achieved by David Vencl, who swam 80 meters under the ice without a wetsuit. “It went faster than I expected, but I trained a lot,” said the Guinness world record holder in diving and ice swimming. Mr. David still can’t get enough. Let it be proved by the fact that he broke another record by plunging into a frozen lake to a depth of fifty meters.
However, there are many more strange Guinness records. “I hold the record for the longest hula hoop spin in the abdominal plank position,” says Kai Sandmeyer. Such a feat may seem simple in theory, but in practice it is much more complicated.
In records, it’s all about surprising and surpassing everyone. Do something no one else has done. In fact, anything – for example, massage non-stop for fifty hours or cook for one hundred hours for record-hungry fans of the impossible. Even if breaking a record can be filled with fear, record-breakers are still found and break new records.
