We accompany free diver Şahika Ercümen on a trip along Turkey’s Black Sea coast.
From the ocean’s surface to 110 meters deep in 2 minutes 49 seconds without an oxygen tank – this is the jaw-dropping record-breaking dive time of world-renowned free diver Şahika Ercümen. Not only did Ercümen break numerous worldwide underwater sport records, she also overcame her own limits: she conquered her asthma with breath exercises and subsequently won several competitions in various underwater sports.
She’s Mercedes caught Ercümen off the coast of Turkey, driving a G-Class as she headed to her next dive. She took a break from her action-packed day and introduced us to the stunning landscape of her native homeland. At the beach she showed us some of her favourite warm-ups and shared what it’s like being a real-life mermaid.
