DNA MAN OR DOLPHIN? THE ULTIMATE DIVE

DNA MAN OR DOLPHIN? THE ULTIMATE DIVE

Not since 1976, when Jacques Mayol’s 100 meter dive shattered the record of Italian diver Enzo Maiorca, (the first man to dive below 50 meters) has there been such a momentous occasion in freediving. On the 5th of July 2005, Patrick Musimo is set to take the planet by storm, using his revolutionary technique he will make the Ultimate Dive into the Red Sea – down to 200 meters! The current record for the freediving category of No Limit is 171 meters; Loic Leferme achieved this in October 2004. Patrick’s attempt to dive almost 30 meters deeper than this will be an astonishing feat, he will set a new difficult benchmark for his freediving counterparts and will be contributing to scientific advances in the field of diving. Jacques Mayol’s favorite quote was “Homo Delphinus is not just a concept” perhaps pioneers like Jacques and Patrick can truly take us there.
