French diver breaks world record with deep dive

STORY: This freediver has broken the world record for the deepest dive

Location: Long Island, The Bahamas

26-year-old Arnaud Jerald descended to a depth of 393.7 ft in bi-fins

The dive took 3 minutes and 34 seconds to complete

It’s the seventh time the Frenchman has broken the world record in his career

[Arnaud Jerald, French freediver] "It was an amazing dive. I cannot believe I made it. I put all my effort this winter for my training here to make it. But for sure at the end when you made it, it's bigger than what I can imagine and I feel safe with the team here. It was my seventh world record and now I think I really enjoy because it was over than the statue (significance) of the world record, it was just enjoying my dive first and after everything can come easily. I was focused the day before and for sure now we can say after this dive what we can do, what I hope to do. I just need to enjoy more and to continue my way, to train more."
