Welcome to the Surf Coast Creatives podcast Anthony or 'Ant' Williams.
Before moving to Torquay, Ant was a Sports psychologist for a motoGP team based in the South of France.
He worked with boxers, mountaineers, kickboxing fighters, athletes competing in five-day adventure races without sleep, rally car drivers and big wave tow-in surfers.
He wanted to experience a dangerous sport for himself though. He searched high and low to find his niche and eventually discovered free-diving at 30 years of age.
The rest is history. Here are 3 of his major achievements:
And on 27 March 2019 Anthony plunged into a frozen fjord in Kirkenes, Norway, achieving an amazing depth of 70.3 m (230.643 ft)—a new World Record!
The dive lasted 2 minutes 29 seconds and saw Ant push through the pitch-black abyss on a single breath. Incredible.
Tune in and let us know what you think and take a look at Ant's brand new podcast if you want to hear more.
