New Zealander defeats very own record with four min and 24 2nd dive in blue hole in Bahamas

A freediver has actually established a brand-new globe document – diving 122m right into a blue opening in the Bahamas on one breath.

New Zealander William Trubridge established his 16th globe mark, defeating his very own document of 121 metres.

The current dive saw him hold his breath for four mins and also 24 seconds.

Deepness of Truebridge freedive When Trubridge did surface area, taking deep gulps of air, lots of observers floating around his dive site fell silent- prior to getting into rapturous praise. The dive was especially special for Trubridge as his parents, David and Linda, and brother Sam had actually taken a trip to the Bahamas to witness his effort. It was the first time Trubridges papa had actually seen his son attempt a world document. We survived on the sea on a yacht for

10 years, it was our house and also for him the sea was his back garden, it was his play area, said David Trubridge. So it made good sense for him to do this example.

On his web site Trubridge wrote that free diving was like remaining in an endless desire. I have a partnership with the midsts, he wrote. They bid me beyond my means, cool, dark, vacant stress, permanently night, endless dreams. Trubridge will attempt an additional world record in the Bahamas on Tuesday early morning.
