French Freediver Breaks Deep Dive World Record
A French freediver, Arnaud Jerald has broken the world record for deepest dive with bi-fins as he descended to a depth of 120m (393ft).
Jerald took 3 minutes and 34 seconds to complete the dive, during the annual Vertical Blue competition in the Bahamas.
It’s the seventh time the 26-year-old has broken the world record in his career.
Speaking on his feat, he said:
“It was an amazing dive. I cannot believe I made it. I put all my effort this winter for my training here to make it. But for sure at the end when you made it, it’s bigger than what I can imagine and I feel safe with the team here. It was my seventh world record and now I think I really enjoy because it was over than the statue (significance) of the world record, it was just enjoying my dive first and after everything can come easily. I was focused the day before and for sure now we can say after this dive what we can do, what I hope to do. I just need to enjoy more and to continue my way, to train more.”
