Freediving


This writer knows how to grab a reader - put a life or death situation in the first three paragraphs. Read about the incredible and frankly, terrifying sport of freediving. It's long but it's worth it...in my opinion.

Read the article here...

I think the writer did a great job in describing how things were at the competition. That said, free diving sounds like one of the scariest things ever.

I think the write would have no problems with creative writing seeing that article was written so vividly. Agree with Terra Shield there - diving or anything deep underwater just sounds scary!

The descriptions of those lifeless bodies being brought to the surface was terrifying. I'm not sure I could watch it.

What makes people indulge in a pastime where the definition of success is to take yourself as close to death as you can possibly get and hope you survive the return journey?
