For many, the idea of diving 100 meters below the ocean surface without an oxygen tank could induce a panic attack.
Not Arnaud Jerald, whose obsession with the deep blue and free diving began at a young age.
“I discovered free diving at seven with my dad in Marseilles, France,” Jerald tells CNN Sport. “At 16, I had a lot of difficulty in school. I’m dyslexic. And this part of my life is so difficult because in the past, I’m really shy with the people.
“When I tried diving for the first time, I went into the depths and I opened my eyes and I just saw the blue.
“In this part of my dive, I saw a mirror and I felt what I had to do for the rest of my life.”Read CNN
