Freediving is an extreme sport, where all respiratory activity is voluntarily paused in the water while divers dive to great depths.
People compete to get more depth, time, or distance.
This activity is practiced ancestrally, although the first competitions and records date from the middle of the 20th century.
Currently, the world record is 130 meters in the constant weight discipline with fins. 125 in free immersion and 102 in constant weight without fins.
