WORLD'S DEEPEST POOL - 40 Meters Conquered In One Breath By French Free Diver
Y-40 Deep Joy Pool is the World's Deepest and is located located within the four-star Hotel Terme Millepini in Montegrotto Terme, Italy. The pool has a diving height of 131 feet, a 12-storey building, or nine double decker buses placed on top of each other. French freediver Guillaume Nery dropped 40 the meters to the bottom in one single breath. The diver emptied his lungs of air before beginning his descent in the Y-40 Deep Joy Pool. Doing this reduces his buoyancy, meaning he can sink faster. The 35-year old, who has previously broken four world records in freediving, spoke about the experience of being underwater; he said: "It is like I am out in space without gravity." Nery is also capable of diving 126 metres below the surface in a single breath.The Y-40 Deep Joy Pool is heated between 32-34 degrees C, making it more comfortable for swimmers who like to swim without a wetsuit. 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 breath hold, 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.Guillaume said: "I just love this place, its one of the most fascinating place to freedive in the world, even if its artificial."When you are in this pool, it feels like a science fiction scene, futuristic, and the water is so clear that sometimes you have the feeling that you are flying."Though the pressure and sheer length of the breathold would be a challenge for a mere mortal, for a freediver like Guillaume, the dive is rather straightforward, he said. Guillaume said: "We try to show another approach to underwater filming."I like to play underwater - to walk, run, jump, climb, fly."That's why, most of the time, I am never swimming, and why I never use fins for moving underwater."I like the idea of acting like a human, amphibious, and not like a diver.Music: Bottom of the Sea (Instrumental Version) by Dhruva Al://
