"There are more people who have gone into space than people
who have dived 100 meters in a single breath."
Born in Marseille in 1996, his father introduced him to freediving at a young age. Due to his dyslexia, school was a difficult journey for him. At the age of 16, he attended his first freediving course, and reached a depth of 30 me-
ters. It was already a great performance at this age !
Down there, at the bottom, he opened his eyes. Finally, he found himself. He found a place where he felt safe, a place he could call home. From that day, he felt like he could start breathing again. Freediving is his calling.
In 2017, after completing his studies, he started attending competitions. Very quickly, he started setting new records. He reached 100 meters at 21 years old, becoming the youngest free diver in history to achieve this depth. It is quite incredible to think that there are more people who have made the trip to the Moon than people who dived more than 100 meters in a single breath.
In 2019, he broke his first World Record with a dive to -108m. In 2020, at the age of 24 in Kalamata, Greece, he set a new World Record to -112m. For his first participation at Vertical Blue, the "Wimbledon" of freediving, Arnaud breaks again the world record with a dive to -116m, and improves his own mark a few days later with -117m. It is currently the deepest dive with bi-fins in history.
