    New World Record Free Dive

    How in the hell is this possible!? Later in the article it mentions that at 100m, the lungs start to fill with blood to keep them from collapsing! It took 4m10s! WTH!!

    Diver plunges 100 meters, unassisted on one breath, to set world record

    By: Pete Thomas, GrindTV.com

    William Trubridge on Monday accomplished what had long been regarded as an impossible feat: swimming to a depth of 100 meters, or 328 feet, on a single breath and with only hands and feet for propulsion.

    The New Zealander did not use swim fins; he wore no weights and required no heavy sled during the descent. Nor did he use an inflatable airbag to swiftly reach the surface after his dive.

    Rather, he set a new unassisted freediving record and achieved the historic 100-meter mark -- previously attained only in an assisted manner, with weighted sleds and airbags -- while wearing only a thin wetsuit and displaying remarkable power of mind over body.

    That is insane I am suprised he didn't die!!

    Must be a different where he was. Something about the crazy nitrogen levels in the water but this guy dies at like 80 some meters in the Blue Hole off the coast of Egypt. This is a crazy video and he was supposedly a scuba diver instructor.
