With the main sponsorship of Matrix Logistics, the national athlete Bilge Çingigiray recaptured the 'longest distance walking underwater in one breath' record, which was previously held by her but was broken by a Russian athlete. The national athlete, who broke the record with a big margin this time, left behind the record distance in both women and men. National freediving athlete Bilge Çingigiray broke the record for 'the longest distance walking in one breath under water', which she broke in 2017 with 67 meters. She had previously been raised to 69 meters by a Russian athlete. However, our national athlete outperformed his opponents by walking 81 meters under water, breathless. While it was learned that the men's record was 79 meters, Bilge Çingigiray, who achieved the record by staying underwater for 2 minutes and 15 seconds, doubled our pride. The moments when the national athlete broke the record were captured underwater by Beng's Production.
Bilge Çingigiray, a Physical Education Teacher, has been competing as a Free Diving National Team athlete since 2007. In free diving, she has been second in Europe 3 times and third in the world once. In 2017, she broke the Guinness world record in the branch. She still holds the Turkish record, which she broke in the static apnea (breath-holding) branch since 2013 with 6 minutes and 23 seconds for women. On March 25, 2019, she made a second record attempt and set a new world record of 2 minutes and 17 seconds. She has a 2-and-a-half-year-old son named Doruk Aydın.
