Freediving is one of the most captivating, fastest growing and least understood sports in the world. Competitors push their physical boundaries to the limit, cheating death in exotic locations. It is highly dangerous, but also, for its many devotees, a way of life.
For Nicholas Mevoli it was pure obsession, one that saw him rise from novice to record-holder in little more than a year - and that tragically claimed his life after competing in the Vertical Blue event at Dean's Blue Hole in the Bahamas.
One Breath is a riveting account of Mevoli's death, the mysterious world of freediving and its extraordinary athletes. Award-winning journalist Adam Skolnick tells a fascinating story filled with quirky characters, evocative history, unsolved mysteries of science, and extreme determination. Travelling to some of the most beautiful places on earth, he sheds light on what fuels athletes to take a single breath and make it last as long, and take them as deep, as humanly possible.
