Want to beat his world record? I wouldn t hold my breath...
Meet Stig Åvall Severinsen, the four-time World Champion freediver from Denmark.
Over the years Stig has developed the remarkable ability to hold his breath to such a degree that he has established numerous world records, diving to incredible depths and swimming astounding distances without breathing, challenging our beliefs of what the human body is capable of.
Now, his lifelong passion for water and testing the limits of his personal endurance have led Stig to face a new, daunting record attempt in the freezing waters of Greenland.
Wearing a wetsuit, and without the assistance of breathing apparatus, he will break through the arctic ice to attempt to set a new Guinness World Record: the longest dive under ice.
With over 150m of freezing water ahead of him (the equivalent of one and a half football pitches), and 1m-thick ice above his head, Stig knows he must keep going at all costs.
Witness one man s attempt to push himself further than any human being has gone before, using all the skill, dedication and courage that he can muster.
Stig Åvall Severinsen achieved a new Guinness World record for his under ice diving and is championed as a hero in his native Denmark.
This incredible sporting achievement makes for mindblowing viewing.
