Arnaud Jerald : the world vice-champion freediver

World vice-champion

If you please ! 2nd year of competition and already a title World vice-champion at 21 years old. This is a big news for every free-diving, sea and our region lovers. Because Arnaud Jerald, despite his young age, is ready to compete with the biggest champions but also to break every free-diving records.

In Turkey Arnaud Jerald dove at 101 meters, only 1 meter under the world record. He performed in constant weight apnea : any additional weight, only the body goes in the depth and goes back to the surface.

A step for new records ?

At 16 years old, his father initiated him to apnea. But the mountain bike exercised his legs and breath. The Calanques was also an idyllic play game for his future passion. This freedom feeling won’t let go. 6 years later, he’s back with a World vice-champion title.

Arnaud Jerald will try to break every records at the next 2019 World Championship, in Nice.
