|My ticket to the screening.|
Every extreme sport in `Attention A Life in Extremes´ has his own feeling, of course, but I mean with the audience.
The Wingman/ Basejumper Halvor: it was crazy, everybody was breathing in, 200km/h wow, the noise when he jumps off the rocks and the wings open for the first time, a stopped heart for a second. There was something like `I wouldnt do it´, the idea of falling off the sky and crash the ground makes u afraid.
Apnoe Diver Guillaume: the breathing technique, the calmness, the ocean, boats, the darkness, the huge pressure when u dive in the depth, it makes u afraid too, but there is a desire to be able to do it, to be free in the water, there is a real beauty in it. And a feeling of security (maybe remembering the mothers womb ;))
Gerhard the race cyclist: 9 days 5000km, yes sure, why not. Its hot, long and u nearly never sleep. 9 days 6 hours sleep in whole. Totally exhausting. You have to mentally push yourself and your physical limit that much, that u are like in an addiction. You can´t stop. There is no way back. He trains every day up to 7 hours, cycling alone through mountains and Europe. All to win that special race in the USA. For us unsporty audience too tiring. Dry lips, less food (helloo we Austrians need a good Jause ;)) and always somebody who is faster than you. Incredible.
We learn: When u focus on something and train hard, you will get fantastic and reach new heights (mentally and physically). We can do whatever we want to do. We create it and to be in and around nature is one of the best things you can do.

|The crew! Awesome.|
