What's the longest anyone has held their breath underwater?

Update in January 2024, the world record for static apnea, which is holding one's breath underwater without any movement, is held by Budimir Šobat's from Croatia. He set a record for holding his breath for an astonishing 24 minutes and 33 seconds. 

How did Budimir hold his breath? 

To achieve his record, Budimir lay on his stomach in a swimming pool, with his face underneath the water, and with a support team around him at all times. He used scuba diving gear to breath in oxygen after getting in position, before taking it away and closing his eyes to concentrate on holding his breath.

It's important to note that records in breath-holding can be dangerous, and attempting to break them without proper training and safety precautions can pose serious risks, including hypoxia and shallow water blackout. Always prioritize safety and receive proper training if you are interested in improving your breath-holding abilities.
