Freediving - The Tanya Streeter Experience

More than a decade ago, in the summer of 2002, I broke my 7th Freediving World Record with a dive to 160m/525ft in the "No Limits" discipline. I would go on to break 3 more WRs, but this one still stands.
I dearly wish it didn't.
Loss of life and serious injuries have resulted in other divers' attempts to go deeper, and a different light has been shed on my sport, and my record. ESPN's "Nine for IX - No Limits" film, aired in the summer of 2013, took an in-depth look at the safety procedures implemented by my team (lead by my husband, Paul Streeter), and those implemented by the team of Audrey Mestre, (lead by her husband, Pipin Ferraras) who died during her WR attempt. She is not alone in this fate, and others who didn't perish remain permanently injured.
We all have limits, we just don't know where they are. To "Redefine Your Limits" is to discover your human potential. I had to hold my breath to find mine, but you don't! This session is part of the brand new SXsports programming at SXSW 2014.
