I Would Die: Freediver Holding On To Anchor Descends To 145 Meters (~476 Feet)

June 20, 2018

This is a video of William 'Corpseface' Winram setting the world record in the variable weight discipline of freediving back in 2014 by descending to a depth of 145 meters (475.7 feet) with a single breath. For reference, I can't even hold my breath long enough for a dog fart to dissipate, and have come close to throwing up on several occasions. "Buy the liver treats," the guy at the pet store said, "She'll love them," he said.

Keep going for the video and try to hold your breath along with him and pass out at your desk.

Thanks to K Diddie and Lulu, who both agree Aquaman should not be allowed to hold freediving world records.

    How many thousands of dollars in GoPro's alone were used?

    I'm guessing that's where he got part of his sponsorship from, and I'm surprised Red Bull didn't have a hand in it too...

    I've heard free divers can get ruptured eardrums without proper preparation and proper appropriate practice of valsalva (self-resisting inner ear pressure equalizing).

    As much as I used to love going in the deep end of the pool this deep end is way too deep. At least free divers don't have to worry about decompression sickness.

    I find diving videos to be harder to watch than those crazy urban climbers videos. Guess my thalassophobia outweighs my fear of heights!

    I still don't know the why behind it. I get wanting to be able to hold your breath to catch your next meal. But this just seems terrifying and like torture.

    Sometimes near death is peaceful.

    You don’t find men who can go down for long periods of time impressive...?

  • Jenness

    Well that shut me up.

    There's a whole island of them in Australia.
