In a few short years, Pierre Frolla has become the legitimate world representative of free diving.


Pierre works in a diving school in Monaco (L'Ecole Bleue), which gives children initiation in free diving and scuba diving. He sees free diving as a way of communicating with oneself and promoting environmental issues.


Acting together with Peace and Sport


In 2011 as a side event to the F1 Monaco Grand Prix, Pierre took on a spectacular challenge: “Operation Poseidon”.  He went by apnoea dive in the bay of Monaco to retrieve the official chequered flag of the 69th Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix, the same morning plunged at a depth of more than 60m at the bottom of the sea in front of Monaco’s Oceanographic Museum! 

This unique operation took place in the presence of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco and many other famous personalities.


The Grand Prix chequered flag had previously been autographed by all of the Grand Prix racing drivers participating in the 69th Monaco Grand Prix as well as some of the greatest athletes in the world during the Monaco Tennis Open 2011, including Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Andy Murray, Gaël Monfils, Sebastien Loeb and Daniel Elena as well as H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco and Pierre Casiraghi.


The flag and the wetsuit that Pierre wore for the dive will be auctioned. The money raise will be use for field-programs where Peace and Sport intervenes.
