Croatian free-diver Goran Colak’s record-breaking feat is part of a scientific research project
studying the physiology of free diving. He set a new world record for holding his breath under water for 20 minutes and 30 seconds, improving the previous record held by German Tom Sietas by eight seconds. The record attempt was made according to Guinness World Records rules, which allow inhaling oxygen in preparation for the actual dive.
