Josef Koeberl of Austria broke the world record for longest time spent submerged in ice in early August.

With a time of two hours, eight minutes and 47 seconds, Koeberl beat the previous record created by Chinese athlete Jin Songhao in Xiamen, China in 2014, whose record was one hour, 53 minutes and 10 seconds.
