“New World Record 31.3m Deathdive! Since deathdiving originated in Norway I figured a Norwegian should be the one to break the 30 meter barrier. That was fun.” –Ken Stornes
That’s gonna leave a mark. Congratulations to Norwegian dødsing practitioner, Ken Stornes, for this absolutely mental 102ft world record dive. At døds competitions held in Norway, competitors curl into a fetal position just before entering the water, landing first with their feet and hands or knees and elbows to avoid serious injury. Competition dives are judged on how long the diver holds the original pose. I’d say Ken held that to the very end. No pain, no gain. Unbelievable.
