In total, the Frenchman was below the surface for three minutes and 24 seconds, during which time Arnauld managed to reach a depth of 112 meters.

Already in 2019, he broke the previous record when he dived to a depth of 108 meters.

In August, he tried on two occasions to break his previous record.

But a Russian freediver named Alexey Molchanov managed the weekend before and set a new world record of 111 meters.

A record that, however, did not last more than a few days. 

- I was told that the world record had been broken by Alexey, then it was just to accept that I had to reach down to 112 meters depth.

It was probably one of the most beautiful dives of the summer, it was a fantastic feeling, says Arnauld Jerald.
