Even among freedivers, few have ever gone as deep as Nicholas Mevoli. As a child he used diving as a way of escaping a frequently lonely existence. When he discovered competitive freediving, Nick was a prodigy - within a year he was shattering records. More than that, with his good looks and burning intensity, he became a star. So when Nick arrived at Vertical Blue, the world's premier freediving competition, in 2013 he was widely expected to continue his incredible success. Instead, that fateful competition turned out to be his last, and suddenly the very future of freediving was called into question. With unparalleled access and masterfully crafted prose, One Breath traces Nick's painful, triumphant, and ultimately tragic tales, while also tacking present-day efforts of top divers to keep challenging records despite mounting risks.
