[offtopic]Is that that guy also named Kike or something like that? When is he going to try? And where? Diving in Norway doesn't sound very hot.

Who would have thought that constant ballast records could increase by more than 10% in less than a year. Not only are the depths insane, but the rate at which new depths are being achieved is insane.
I personally believe that more than 50% of able bodied people in the world could set a freediving record with the right training. That is only because the current records are pitifully shallow compared to how deep they will be in 20 years. If freediving were compared to sprinting, the current 100m sprint record would be 11 seconds. When the no-limits record goes over 300m, the constant weight record over 120m, and the static record goes over 10 minutes, then it will start getting really hard to break the records....until then everyone has a chance, and until then I don't think any record freediver should be idolized.

BTW: Umberto, my vote , is on there twice!
