Aurore Asso, freediver, poses for the photographer at the A.I.D.A. Freediving World Championships, Villefranche-sur-Mer, France, 11 September 2012. Aurore is France's female champion for depth freediving at sea, with a constant weight national record of 75 m.<br />
<br />
Aurore started freediving at the age of 8, on the first of many family holidays to the Greek island of Alonnisos. Here, she spent hours in the water with her parents, looking for fragments of ancient pottery and shells. She has vivid memories of finding sea urchins with her father. While they were still underwater, he would open a sea urchin with a rock, clean it, and then father and daughter would swim to the surface, where they would lie on the water and eat the urchin. "Better than caviar" she claims. <br />
<br />
"When you freedive, you enter a completely different universe. I don't want to know what parameters might improve my performance. I want to stay connected to my instincts, and the feeling of the water"<br />
<br />
"A good dive is when you can leave behind on the surface everything that belongs to the surface"
