HOLD YOUR BREATH ($99,000 – $143,000)



Stig Severinsen (a Danish free diver) was born March 8, 1973.

In December 2020, he crushed the former world record, by swimming 202 meters – on a single breath of air!


Severinsen also holds the world record for holding his breath, under water – for an unbelievable 22 minutes!


To put that in perspective, the average, adult human has a lung capacity of 5 to 6 liters, allowing them to hold their breath for between 30 and 90 seconds.

Severinsen can reach a remarkable – 14 liters!


What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?

Not much, really!
