Down world’s deepest pool

Daredevil free-diver Guillaume Néry has lungs of steel.

The 29-year-old has become the first in the world to deep dive 33 metres to the bottom of NEMO 33 — a container filled with 2.5 million litres of non-chlorinated spring water.

The NEMO 33 is a tank in Brussels, Belgium that’s being used to train scuba divers.

The pool is also capable of simulating varied conditions which scuba divers may face during work hours.

Surprisingly, according to reports, this pool is rather tame for Frenchman Néry.

In 2004, he plunged 96 metres in Saint-Leu in France and then in 2006, he beat that feat with a 109-metre dive in Nice, France.

For the NEMO 33 dive, experts feel, Nery must have held his breath for a good five minutes plus.
