Austrian Josef Koeberl broke the world record, managing for 2.5 hours to stay in a glass cabin full of ice, Austrian broadcaster ORF reported.
She said Coeberle set a world record for the longest contact of a man’s body with ice on Saturday in the town of Melk in Lower Austria. According to the extreme, one of his goals was to draw attention to the melting of glaciers.
In Sevastopol, a new Russian power record among women was set. The participants of the “Eurasian Games” festival Oksana Kosheleva and Ekaterina Prokopova moved twenty meters “Kamaz” for a cable attached to the truck. The weight of the car was about eight tons.
The Austrian also reportedly wanted to show that everyone can expand their options.
“It’s about giving up negative beliefs, motivating yourself, and, above all, believing in yourself. That’s what I want to convey,” the record holder said.
Koeberl broke his own record: last year he stood 2 hours 8 minutes and 47 seconds in the ice, which was then a world record. Remarkably, on Saturday, after sitting in the ice for 2.5 hours, Keoberl expressed his desire to eat ice cream.
