Born in Kraimorie in a family of divers. “Breakwater” is the word that best described the calmness he shows, when welcoming powerful seas.
A young hope in the world of free diving, his achievements reach close to the human limits.
***Today , while I was swimming the weather often changed. At first it was quiet and dark, then for a moment I could see the sun, after that the wind blew and it started raining.
While I was swimming I thought that no such thing as uncertain weather exists in the water. There is no wind, no heavy rain or hot sun there. Everything is constant, you never think, as when leaving your home, if you are going to be hot or cold; it is always the same –welcomes you and acceptsyou each and every time.
It’s the same with your emotions. There is no anger or prejudice in the water; the moment you dive, you can be yourself – pure and genuine. And everything that makes you sad stays above.***
