Meet the superhumans of extreme sports
Forging their own path. Marching to the beat of their own drum. Pushing the limits. Jumping from space, running marathons across the Sahara, or freediving to the depths of the Atlantic, There’s a superhuman for everything. Introducing: the champions of extreme sports. To prove to you that, with enough passion and determination, anything is possible.
Ever heard of freediving?
It’s the act of diving, underwater into a great watery abyss, all the while holding your breath with no oxygen tank allowed. And then, just keep on going until you reach outlandish depths. Now that’s the human body pushing the limits! 700 feet (214 metres) is one freediving champion’s record – in a single, nine-minute long breath. And...exhale.
There’s a superhuman in all of us
It’s not just the ultra-runners, sound barrier blasters, and freedivers with superhuman skills. Everyone has a uniquely magical spark. Did you know, our brains use a whopping 25% of our inhaled oxygen? Just our brain! So, even if you’re wondering about tomorrow’s class, meeting or which Lynx antiperspirant to buy in the grooming aisle, you’re using your superhuman skills, too.
