-124m, NEW RECORD FOR FRANCE!

2013|06|17

When I dove down to -124m on the 2nd day of the MED CUP 2013, I beat my personal record for France and just missed Alexey Molchanov's World Record by 2 metres. On the last day of the competition, I came very close to -127m, but unfortunately failed. After having reached the required depth and bringing the tag back up to the surface, I blacked out shortly after getting my breath back. Although I was hugely disappointed and emotional after such a failure, my 2 French Mafia comrades managed their dive. -90m for Rémy Dubern and an impressive -81m for Alice Modolo who, during the competition, beat her 3rd record for France and therefore managed to get in to the closed-access women's club for over 80m !  Thank you all for your support, it was an extraordinary experience !  Next, training resumes to prepare for the world championships, held from 15 to 22 September in Kalamata in Greece, where I have a World Champion title to defend ! 

here is a short video, filmed during my decompression after reaching -124m, nothing like an improvised dance to celebrate !  Filmed by Daan Verhoeven !
