Birčák (42) from Dolná Seč
(district Levice, Slovakia), a member of Slovenské
ľadové medvede - Polar Bears Slovakia set a unique world
record: in a barrell filled with ice-cubes he spent 75
minutes and 1 second!That means he broke the
Guinness Book record of Wim Hof from the Netherlands (72:48 min.).
Tibor set the record during a
New Year´s Eve live show in front of thousands of viewers on the Main
Square of the capital of Slovakia Bratislava between
19:35 and 20:50 h. Outdoor temperature was -4°C.
Tibor´s own Slovak
record was 47 minutes. During the attempt and after setting the
world record Tibor had no problems, he communicated normally
and dressed without
help afterwards. A good preparation and an outstanding result!
Congratulations to Tibor
and also to the main organizer
of this event – a winter swimmer and a writer Pavol Dinka!!! You
