That story was a perfect description of what most competitive freedivers go through (besides Herbert) before, during and after the competitions. You are a true athlete, to be able to perform under the conditions that you did and to be able to handle the stress that would crush most large men like a bug, was a testament to your abilities. You, as I told you before and will always think, are my HERO:inlove

Thanks for making freediving the incredible sport that it is.

Awesome story!


Great piece on Cyprus! In the end, it's all about the people who go and share the experience of throwing themselves headlong into apnea, street lamps (Bill's a funny guy!), and the arms of everyone they meet.

Your portrait of Kirk is bang-on! :t
