Free divers descend to depths of over 100 metres at world championships in France

Russian free diver Alexey Molchanov descended to a depth of 118 metres in more than four minutes without taking a breath, in a world free-diving competition held on the French Riviera. The AIDA Depth World Championship gathers divers from around the world from September 2-15 in Villefranche-sur-Mer, on a 400 square-metre offshore platform in the Mediterranean Sea. An eight-time champion, Molchanov holds the constant weight free diving world record of 130 meters, which he set in the Bahamas in 2018. The 32-year-old Volgograd native has won 18 medals in world championship events and set 12 world records. French diver Abdelatif Alouach honed his freediving skills as a longtime competitive spearfisher.
