Isle of Wight freediver at home under the waves

Sam Hutchinson, 18, of School Green Road, Freshwater, began freediving about six months ago, inspired by videos he had seen online.

Freediving is when you do not use any breathing apparatus.

Sam can hold his breath for two minutes and said he was building this up by training his body to function with higher levels of carbon dioxide.

Professional freedivers can hold their breath underwater for up to 20 minutes.
