Have You Seen This? Man free dives deepest pool in the world on one breath

Posted July 23

THE POOL — Remember when you were a kid and you were in the tub and you'd yell to your mom, "Hey, mom. Imma hold my breath. Count how long."

Then you stick your face in the dirty tub water with your ears exposed and your mom makes it to 10 and you're ready to call the Guinness Book of World Records? Well, free diver Guillaume Nery is not impressed by your bathtub shenanigans, and this video proves why.

Nery is one of the world's best free divers and he showed off his amazing skills by diving to the bottom of the world's deepest pool.

The Y-40, also known as The Deep Joy, is a pool at the Hotel Terme Millepini in Italy. The pool itself holds over 1.1 million gallons of water and has a depth of 131 feet. In the video, Nery jumps in and dives all the way to the bottom on one breath. Not to mention once he gets there he just kind of hangs out and enjoys the scenery.

So next time you try to break bathtub world records remember that Nery has you beat. But I'm proud of you. I mean, 12 seconds is a long time to keep your face in the water you just bathed in with all kinds of gross stuff floating around. So, maybe Nery actually is impressed.

John has grown up around movies and annoys friends and family with his movie facts and knowledge. John also has a passion for sports and pretty much anything awesome and it just so happens that these are the three things he writes about.
