We’ve just heard breaking news that all sports related to diving, including Freediving & Scuba Diving, have been banned globally according to the Global Federation Of Sports Science today.

In a statement issued today, Prof Alid Loyas, lead scientist of the Federation, had this to say:

“After conducting an extensive study over the last 10 years with thousands of test subjects, we feel we cannot let diving related sports continue in their current form.”

The shock conclusion of the study was that diving related sports participants all show incredible levels of Endorphin, Serotonin, and Phenylethylamine hormones whilst suiting up as well as during and after diving.
