Mateusz Malina - Part Two

freediving training secrets

Mateusz Malina started diving in late 2008, but already knew that it would become his destiny seven years earlier after trying it in a pool with his friends.
His achievements are too numerous to list them all, he has set multiple world records in dynamic with fins (DYN) and without fins (DNF) and is the current world record holder in both of them.
His favourite discipline is DNF, in which he’s won three consecutive World Championship titles.
He is also a VERY proficient deep diver, diving to 114m in FIM and 89m in CNF.

In his own words, he loves training more than competition, the process of bettering himself, discovering his limits and his weakest spots and overcoming them. Curiosity of the potential of the human body is his driving force.
His motto is ‘limits are only in our heads’.
