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.
