Egypt, last Tue, May 8th 2018, the Russian Dimitri Pavlenko, amputated of his four members has succeeded his world record during a deep dive to 40 m in total autonomy.
"I feel bright and positive emotions from the challenge. The 40 meters depth is impressive! I am very glad we did it. The task was set very difficult, to perform a 40 meter dive yourself, without assistance.
We practiced a lot, everything worked for us in the training, but we did not know exactly whether it would work out on the appointed day, because the sea is different every day.
So it happened - on the day of the record dive there was a strong wind and underwater current stronger than on the days of training. But I managed, we succeeded, thanks to properly selected equipment and the selfless work of our team and my desire and activity. Thanks to this, we were able to show that even complex goals are achievable, despite my obvious limitations."
