Watch This Guy Willingly Swim Under the Surface of a Frozen Lake From Opening to Opening

I have watched this video of a man swim under the surface of a lake no less than 25 times. Each time, I hold my breath while he casually swims between large holes cut into the ice. I highly recommend you DO NOT TRY THIS!

This particular swimmer is freediving at Lake Milada in the Czech Republic. Freediving is a form of underwater swimming that relies on breath-holding for longer periods of time – and definitely takes a certain gumption to perform.

OK, you can exhale now, he’s fine!


DK has been a fan of the internet for quite some time now and loves working with it. He likes dogs, sports, and bologna. He has 1 degree and 1 intramural Ping Pong championship from Ithaca College. Fun fact: he can whistle inhaling as well as exhaling.
