WATER CLIMBING OR PSICOBLOC

The modern world is characterized by rapid development. Sport is no exception! Currently, parasailing, ice half marathon, water climbing, which are combined sports, are gaining popularity. Let us dwell in more detail on the latter. It is also called Psicobloc. Translated literally, it means “psychological defense.” And there is a reasonable explanation for this. The organizers of the competition hoped that, overcoming the height and then making the jump from the top, the participants would be able to “turn off” the psychological defense of the person responsible for the feeling of fear.

It all started with the fact that athletes from the United States came to sunny Spain to relax before the competition. The island of Mallorca with its rocky shores and warm sea encouraged them to create a new sport called Psicobloc.

FEAR AND FEAR OF DIVERS

Many people think that divers are fearless. This is a myth, because every person is afraid of something, and during diving you can meet a lot that could cause fear.

ICE HOCKEY – THE MOST EXTREME WINTER SPORT

If the idea of ​​regular ice diving is not so scary, then you should think about ice hockey. Do not confuse with classic ice hockey or even underwater hockey. This sport was conceived in 2005 by freediver Christian Redl and his training partner Jaromir Fukal. A few years later, 2007, the first world championship was held in the Austrian city of Weissensee, where the Finnish team won. Other gaming countries were the Czech Republic, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland and Slovenia. The second world championship in underwater hockey was held in February 2013 in Weissensee (Austria), where Austria won the championship.

Despite the fact that people from northern Europe are the best sportsmen in winter sports, athletes from Austria were able to surpass everyone. The temperature of the “water” during the game reaches the mark of 5 degrees, which is why it is not surprising that the participants in the competitions are mainly residents of countries with harsh climates.
