Austrian Josef Koeberl improved his own world record on Saturday. The man sat for no less than 2 hours, 30 minutes and 57 seconds in a glass cabin with 200 kilograms of ice cubes. To celebrate, he ate a soft ice cream afterwards.
Only dressed in swimming trunks, Koeberl crawled between the ice cubes. He was connected to his audience via a headset. I manage to baste the pain by thinking of positive things, he said. The only way I can handle this is to remind myself of fine things
The spectators in the Austrian Melk, where he did his stunt on a square, saw how he stayed in the cabin for 2 hours, 30 minutes and 57 seconds. That is 30 minutes longer than his previous record of 2019.
Feet warming up
Koeberl said he felt ‘very good’ after he came out of the ice with the help of others. Putting on my socks will do fine. Your feet are the first thing you need to warm up.
Next year Koeberl hopes to improve his time in Los Angeles. But before that, he can enjoy his current world record.
