Another day, another record for freediver William Trubridge.
On Monday, William set a new record for a “free immersion” dive: a whopping 407 feet (124 meters). In free immersion, the competitor pulls his/herself down a weighted rope without fins. The record comes just two days after the previous high (or low) mark of 122 meters—also set by Trubridge.
The record comes during the annual Vertical Blue event, hosted by Trubridge (aka the freediving king). He had not planned to break the record (again), but Trubridge felt so good after the Saturday dive that he gave it a shot. A 4-minute and 34-second breath-hold later and Trubridge raised the bar, once again. It is his 17th freediving record.
