New talent in deep freediving, Marseille's Arnaud Jérald broke the world record in twin fins (constant weight) by descending to 112 m on Tuesday in Kalamata, Greece.
The 24-year-old diver signed his feat in a competition, the European Cup, in which about twenty athletes participate.
He dived Tuesday morning for a record apnea in 3 minutes and 24 seconds.
He broke the world record that had just been set by world star Alexey Molchanov.
The Russian, who held the best world mark (110 m in August 2019), descended Monday to 111 m in 4 min 10 sec in Krk (Croatia).
He wants to cross the Mediterranean in apnea to warn of the dangers that await him
