Maurice Lacroix Watch Continues to Support Freediver Séb Murat
Wednesday - 04 July 2012
Murat aims to dive 703ft below sea level without oxygen using a special breathing technique inspired by his studies of whales, dolphins and seals. Maurice Lacroix ran a worldwide competition called 'The French Job' in order to find a team of eight bloggers and assistants to support Murat in the record attempt.
Unfortunately Murat was unable to attain the world record during the two weeks. English blogger Denea Buckingham explained that "the puzzle of perfect diving conditions, optimal equipment performance, mental and physical preparedness did not intersect" but stressed that Murat will continue his studies of the Mammalian Diving Reflex in order to achieve his goals in future. "Experiencing first hand Sébastien’s determination and ingenious approach to his craft I have no doubt that we will see him reach new heights in freediving and discover new depths in the human species," she wrote in her final blog post.
