During a pre-race performance, escape artist David Merlini holds his breath inside a transparent aquarium filled 264 Gallons (1000 liters) of water, as he attempted to break the world record for holding ones breath underwater before the start of the Bahrain Formula One Grand Prix, in Sakhir, Bahrain on Sunday, April 26, 2009. Merlini did set a new record, holding his breath for 21 minutes and 29 seconds

    He probably did pure oxygen beforehand and went into a light meditative state right after going under, using less resources while using the oxygen buildup in his body.

    I wonder if he used the mammalian diving reflex to help lower the oxygen demand. Not curious enough to read about it, just enough to wonder aloud on the net.
