A 37-year-old Frenchman has set a world record for the longest time holding his breath underwater–an astounding 11 minutes and 35 seconds. And get this–Stephane Mifsud says it will take him two months to recover from the effort.
Mifsud practiced 30 hours a week for six months by holding his breath for 2-8 minutes at a time.
In these days of performance enhancement–Mifsud was not allowed to use oxygen before his effort.
