Tanya Streeter

Since 1998, when Tanya Streeter reportedly discovered her talent for holding her breath a reaallly long time, the 30-year-old freediver has broken each and every record ever set in the "extreme sport." Streeter can dive more than 520 feet deep and hold her breath for more than six minutes. In 2002 Sports Illustrated named her the "World's Most Perfect Athlete," and last year the Island Thyme Bistro, on the tiny Salt Cay Island, even named a drink after her, Tanya's Deep Blue. For more on Streeter and her record-setting dives, check out the Web site.
