Umberto Pelizzari is an Italian freediver, widely considered among the best of all times. He’s the only one to have established world records in all freediving disciplines that existed at that time — Constant Weight, Variable Weight, and No Limits.
He became famous for his rivalry with another top freediver, Pipin Ferreras, originally a close training friend. No-Limits, Pelizzari and Ferreras pushed each other deeper and deeper and became the focus of the 2001 IMAX production Ocean Men.
He’s also done work teaching, has worked on television shows, created Apnea Academy, and co-authored the widely used Manual of Freediving.
