Diver’s description: Diving at Guadalupe Island- While I was in the other submersible cage, this female shark, known locally as “Milana Arnone” just casually swims up and bites the shark cage’s air supply, getting a mouthful of air. As soon as this happens, our cage air supply dips, and breathing becomes a little labored through the entire event.
While the divemaster is switching to the alt air supply for his cage, the shark decides to dive down into the cage with 3 other divers. Having no “reverse”, the shark then wedges itself into the cage. The divemaster shoots to the top to alert the boat that there is a problem all while one of the biggest sharks we’ve seen comes to check out what’s going on.
The cage is raised and the divers have to exit next to the shark. The captain and crew decide to tie a rope around the sharks tail and lower the cage, essentially holding the shark in place and popping the shark out! The shark swims away. Luckily no one was hurt, including the shark**. If it wasn’t for the training and quick thinking of the crew, this could have ended a lot differently.
Ray Williams pulled off the first-ever 1,000-plus-pound raw squat lift in history, putting up 456 kilograms (exactly 1,005.3 pounds) at the USA Powerlifting Raw Nationals in Atlanta, Georgia over the weekend.
Williams performed the lift under the “raw” standards of the International Powerlifting Federation, meaning no “squat suit” and no knee wraps—just a standard weightlifting belt and knee sleeves. It’s the first time an athlete has squatted more than 1,000 pounds raw in a drug-tested competition.
