Death Diving, or Døds in Norwegian, is an amateur diving sport managed by Det Internasjonale Dødseforbundet (The International Døds Federation). The World Championship is performed from a platform of 10-14 meters in height. There are separate competitions for Classic and Freestyle. In the Classic event, competitors are to fly horizontally with their arms and legs extended until they hit the water. Competitors curl into a fetal position just before entering the water, breaking the surface tension with their feet and hands or knees and elbows to avoid serious injury; dives are judged on how long the diver holds the original pose. In Freestyle Døds, the competitors do various tricks during the air travel, hence the name. The sport is not registered as a discipline in the Norwegian Swimming Federation. Det Internasjonale Dødseforbundet (literally The International Døds Federation) was founded January 1st 2012.
