Too many cuts away and too many camera angles plus the amount of energy expended running underwater? All on one breath? Hm. Impressive for the long shots though.

Some great views.

Oh yes - what is that g-string thing? And why wear it?

This is mesmerizing. What on earth is going on at 5:50? Is that a thermocline? I thought it might be an underwater cave, shot upside-down, but there appears to be . . sand?

Very disorienting, in a fun way.

I keep wanting to breathe for him. Lovely, that underwater cliff area, the stuff of dreams.

Thank you for this more please. Though I do agree with episodic above. The editing is poor. Of all sports, this is one that should be indulged with long shots.

The g-string thing is probably a weight belt, and that is the place that centers it, maybe his waist is not the center of his balance in the water.
