Niceeee......
It's so peaceful when he reaches the deep. I think his heart rate slows down a lot.  ;)

Cayalah (Hail) lah Ikan..fantastic video.

But i think for this particular run (a combination of Free Immersion and Dynamic Apnea No Fins) this william guy was not on full throttle.

His record shows that he is capable of more.

Excerpt from AIDA world ranking 2007:

Constant weight.

Rnk. Top Athlete Nation AP RP
1 1 NITSCH Herbert AUT 112m 112m
2 2 MULLINS David NZL 114m 110m
3 3 COSTE Carlos VEN 103m 103m
4 4 NÉRY Guillaume FRA 99m 99m
5 5 KARPIŠ Juraj SVK 101m 97m
6 6 SHINOMIYA Ryuzo JPN 90m 90m
7 7 MALDAMÉ Christian FRA 88m 88m
7 7 TRUBRIDGE William NZL 88m 88m

Constant Weight Without Fins.

Rnk. Top Athlete Nation AP RP
1 1 NITSCH Herbert AUT 83m 83m
2 NITSCH Herbert AUT 77m 77m
2 3 WINRAM William CAN 76m 76m
3 4 TRUEBRIDGE William NZL 75m 75m

Free Immersion.

Rnk. Top Athlete Nation AP RP
1 1 NITSCH Herbert AUT 90m 90m
- - TRUBRIDGE William NZL 90m 90m


But you can see he was so relaxe when swimming, enjoying the glide. He should be happy, a fantastic achivement.
