A freediver who reached the bottom of the world’s deepest pool on a single breath has been captured in incredible footage.
The amazing video shows Guillaume Nery getting to the bottom of the 40-meter deep Y-40 Deep Joy pool, near Venice, Italy, sinking at a rapid speed after emptying his lungs to be less buoyant.
Doing so, Guillaume said, was only one half of the challenge though. The other was to have his wife, Julie Gautier, swim next to him and film the entire breathold, without using scuba equipment.
The 35-year-old, from Nice, France, said that he undertook the challenge because of his love for the venue, despite it being artificial and different from the natural locations where he usually undertakes dives.
With Julie by his side for this specific dive, Guillaume looked to have fun with the occasion, and after releasing the footage this month, his video has already been viewed more than half a million times.
