Have you ever wanted to get yourself into the Guinness Book of World Records but didn’t know what to do?

I just came across an interesting Guinness Book of World Records NEW RECORD: Farthest simulated distance static cycling underwater (apnoea) without any breathing equipment.  Simply put, a man gets into a water tank that has a stationary bicycle in it.  He takes a deep breath, puts his face underwater and pedals.  As he pedals, there is a counter that simulates the distance he would be riding if underwater.  The counter is in meters.

He rode 855m to beat the World Record. That’s exactly 2,805 feet and 1 inch.

Who is this man?  Italian Homar Leuci.

Oddly enough, Homar was already the current record holder, so he was out to beat his old distance of 767m (2,516 feet, 4 inches).  He did.

What does he get for this?  A certificate and addition into the Guinness Book of World Records + Bragging rights.

Watch him break his world record here:
