Free Diving World record set by William Trubridge

New Zealander beats own record with four minute and 24 second plunge in blue hole in Bahamas

A freediver has set a new world record – plunging 122m into a blue hole in theBahamas on one breath.

New Zealander William Trubridge set his 16th world mark, beating his own record of 121 metres.
The latest dive saw him hold his breath for four minutes and 24 seconds.

In a video posted by Trubridge’s diving company Vertical Blue, Trubridge said the dive was “pretty difficult”.

“I had a beautiful descent, everything went well with the descent,” he said.
At the bottom of the descent, Trubridge ran into difficulties attaching a tag to his leg, and said his ascent to the surface was “terrible”.

“At that point I was completely out of the headspace that I need to be in for a deep dive,” he said.

“With my focus off, I was not in the right head space, not in the place I like to be, to complete my dive with ease or confidence, in fact as I neared the surface I thought I might have a big black out at the top.”

When Trubridge did surface, taking deep gulps of air, dozens of observers floating around his dive site fell silent- before breaking into rapturous applause.

The dive was particularly special for Trubridge as his parents, David and Linda, and brother Sam had travelled to the Bahamas to witness his attempt. It was the first time Trubridge’s father had seen his son attempt a world record.
