Now That Is Holding Your Breath!

A couple days ago, I posted about the aquatic ape theory and a new world record for holding one's breath. Today, I saw this article from the Daily Mail:
As he glides gracefully to the surface and expels a deep breath, it is hard to believe that William Trubridge has just managed to hold his lungs to dive 125m into the depths of the sea.

The 31-year-old from New Zealand is a competitive free diver - an underwater sport during which the athletes compete in time, distance, or depth, on a single breath.

This week he won the World's Absolute Freediving Award, in the Bahamas, for the second year in a row, which ranks him as the world's top free diver.
