DUBAI, UAE, September 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Herbert Nitsch 'The Deepest Man on Earth' is a world record-holding freediver. In this sport, athletes take one breath of air and dive deep below the ocean surface.
Nitsch excels in the most dangerous diving discipline of all - No Limits. In a No Limits dive, the freediver uses a powered sled to descend and ascend rapidly, going much deeper than a diver who is propelled simply by their own swimming. In 2006, Nitsch set the No Limits mark at 183 meters; a year later, he improved his record to 214 meters.
On June 6, 2012, he planned to set a new record of 253 meters, diving off the coast of the Greek island of Santorini. Doctors advised him that it would be impossible to dive so deep. He made it down to that depth but blacked out on the way to the surface.
Herbert Nitsch is an invited guest speaker at The SPEARO Extreme Sports Expo being hosted at Skydive Dubai from October 9th to 11th. He will be talking about his world record free-dives, his near death experience on his last world record attempt and his full recovery.
Zarir Saifuddin the Editor of SPEARO Freediving Magazine said, "We are excited to have Herbert visit Dubai. Freediving and spearfishing are already two of the most popular extreme sports and outdoor activities in the UAE. Inviting the Deepest Man on Earth for an exciting talk will definitely take the sports' popularity to another level."
The extreme sports expo, to be held appropriately at the Skydive Dubai Palm Island drop zone, will take place from October 9 - 11. Engaging the UAE's burgeoning extreme and adrenaline sports community, the three-day event will treat fans of sports on land, air and sea to the best international and local equipment and brands. The expo will also host seminars and demonstrations visitors can actively participate in.
Herbert Nitsch's talk will take place on the 10th of October at 7pm at The SPEARO Extreme Sports Expo.
