An elite athlete has just emerged spending a record-breaking 500 days alone a cave in Spain. Beatriz Flamini, 50, is an extreme mountaineer. She participated a scientific study to examine the effects extreme isolation and deprivation on physical and mental health. She had to live in solitude a cave 70 metres deep. She embarked the solitary endeavour on the 20th of November 2021 and emerged her subterranean abode last Friday. After resurfacing, she was given health check-ups a doctor and psychologist. Rather than have a shower, she faced inquisitive reporters a press conference, which she briefly explained the past 16 months.
Ms Flamini was beaming as she told journalists that time had flown . She said she was surprised when scientists came to tell her the 500 days had ended. She had been constantly monitored psychologists and cave experts, but had no contact anyone else. She lost track time and all perception time after day 65 "because it was always four the morning". She explained her attitude, saying: "The most important thing is being very consistent….I lived to my commitment to living in a cave for 500 days." She put her success to being able to "get on very well myself". She did admit to having occasional cravings roast chicken.
