what is more important in freediving? Fitness or Mental strength

A certain level of fitness is required to do anything in life, but if you can't handle the thought of being immersed in water, then it doesn't matter how fit you are...

There was a tv-show here in Sweden a few days ago. It's called "Fear Factor" and might be aired in other parts of the world as well. I think it's an american program originally. Anyway, there was this adventure guy and this female elite swimmer who did various things to test their fears. One event was static apnea. As you can imagine the confidence before the event was much better with the female competitor. Yet, at the end it turns out he hung on for 2 minutes, while she paniced after 30 seconds.
