The ABC science show Catalyst aired a story about Sébastien Murat training to break the free diving record.
While I usually find Extreme sports boring and rather silly, there is something about what Sébastien Murat does that transcendes all that.
Sébastien Murat known as “The Human Sub” attempts to break the world record for extreme human breath-hold diving, made famous by the feature film ‘The Big Blue’. In the virtually bottomless waters of Kimbe Bay, on the island of New Britain, Papua New Guinea, he tries to reach an unbelievable depth of 180 metres, without the assistance of any breathing equipment.
