Derya Can from Turkey smashed the Guinness World Record for the longest freedive under ice today, February 24, with a 120-meter (394-feet) dive horizontally under the frozen surface of Austria’s Weissensee lake. The feat broke the previous record of 112.3 meters set by France’s Aurore Asso.

The achievement was completed in just 1 minute and 47 seconds. As well as a team of safety divers, Can was accompanied by her husband Tayfun Göçen and coach Adnan Yanbay. Notary Josef Trampitsch verified the record.

In December 2016, Can broke the world record in the variable weight apnea without fins at sea category, reaching a depth of 94 meters (308 feet) off the coast of Kaş in Turkey’s Antalya Province.
