Tom Sietas

Twelve-times world records holder Tom Sietas, 30, a German man has held his breath underwater for 15 minutes and two seconds, breaking his own world record (14 minutes and 25 seconds) on a television show.

According to Reuters reports, his feat was helped by a pre-stunt inhalation of 20 minutes of pure oxygen and a five-hour fast.

Mr Sietas has lungs that are 20 percent larger than average for his size, lung expert Dr. Marc Spero told Reuters. He also manages to stay very still, which reduces the need for oxygen.

Reminds me of "the Hunger Artist". What people will do for attention is astonishing.
