Free Diving Legend is Lost While Diving

The full story is here: Natalia Molchanova: world's 'greatest freediver' feared dead | Sport | The Guardian

An incredible woman who pushed the sport of Free Diving to new depths with amazing record-breaking feats of swimming underwater.

Read the article just to learn how deep and how far a human can go underwater!

At the following year’s world championship in Sardinia she broke the world record with a fin by diving for 237 metres. In total she won 20 world championship individual golds.

Molchanova, 53, holds 41 world records in freediving – diving without breathing apparatus – and can hold her breath for nine minutes. In May, she dived to a depth of 71 metres in waters off Egypt.
