David Blaine: Breathtaking

David Blaine set the world record by holding his breath for 17 minutes and 4 seconds on Oprah Winfrey's TV show today in Chicago. The previous record, which was 32 seconds shorter, was set in February.

Blaine has followed Houdini's style by having the ability to perform difficult feats by remaining in excellent physical and mental condition. He has refined his techniques and has already mastered and continues to develop new and more daring escapes and challenges.
