For quite some time now, everybody here at Deeperblue have watched in awe and inspiration as Deepest Bear still continues to leap new boundaries in the realm of stuffed animal apnea sport.

I've heard little bits of worldwide news that others are getting involved in freediving. I did a quick search on the web and found two possible new areas of competition that Deeperblue might want to get some early training for.

In Peru, high in the Andes, there is supposedly a newcomer to Static, and apparently he could be then next big thing. Static Chinchilla, who's still looking for sponsorship, might be a formidable competitor in the next static competitions next year.

Secondly, from Australia...There's the Furthest Wombat. A relatively novice no-fins swimmer who knows how to manage oxygen like no other.

I just thought Deepest Bear, Sam, and all of their supporters, fans and friends might want to be aware of possible entrants to some of next year's world-wide competitions.

I'm putting my money on Deepest Bear, as well.

Deepest Bear has no fear! he loves a bit of competition. Now he has discovered honey from the Island of Kalymnos, home of the sponge divers, he is ready for some serious records - we are having it shipped in daily as he is convinced it will make him a better diver....

Well, don't forget to mention to DB that Texas has it's share of rare honeys and royal jelly.

I've already heard news that Static Chinchilla has tested positive for performance enhancing drugs. I'll try and find out if it's true.

I'm rootin' for Deepest Bear all the way. I know he travels all around the globe. But perhaps I can get an address to send him some wild clove honey from Texas.
I don't know if our wombat will do too well given his diet. He eats roots and leaves rofl
At the world championships in Vancouver, the Deepest Bear tested positive for incredibly high amounts of Stuffanimalonium, a substance known to put its user into a permanent cataleptic state. As such, AIDA international declared the bear's past and future records null and void. Further, the other freedivers at the competition were so enraged at this blatant example of cheating that they tried to take revenge on the bear, and incinerated him. However he survived, and still lives, but he has lost all respect after the positive test for Stuffanimalonium.

Because AIDA placed a lifetime ban on the deepest bear for AIDA events, the latest rumour is that the bear has teamed up with Christian Redl of Austria, and as before, a new category will be 'invented' such that they can set a record in it (I think it was dynamic apnea with scooter under ice, last time). This time I heard it was upside down motorcycle apnea under ice (who can drive a motor cycle upside down, driving on the underside of the ice, the farthest, on one breath. Of course, it won't be recognized by AIDA.

....I always thought he might be "on the juice", he never seemed to close his eyes and that isn't normal.
Deepest Bear steers clear of Texas these days - someone who lives there tried to kill him a while back.... and he would be very suspicious of any foodstuffs posted from the district (and probably make his PA test them for poison first!)

at the moment he is in Cayman with M and M but undercover..... these days DB just can't live the all out public lifestyle he is used to... but still waters run deep... and so does the bear...

yes, the next record will be apnea marathon under water with lead boots on.... he's thinking of doing it under the Thames
