William Trubridge Sets New Constant No-Fins Freediving Record of 102 Meters

As if there were any doubt, freediver William Trubridge has cemented his place in history with another record-breaking dive, this time setting a new constant no-fins world record of 102 meters. It was a particularly sweet achievement, as the record had escaped him by a miniscule margin—just 20 meters from the surface—the last time he tried the feat in December 2014.

Once again diving at his home base of Dean’s Blue Hole—a 203-meter-deep sinkhole in a lagoon on an island in the Bahamas—Trubridge set the record in four minutes and 14 seconds. To be clear: That’s 335 feet down and 335 feet back up on a single breath—no fins, no weights.

Trubridge had this to say about the dive: “I am thrilled to have cracked the record and to have completed a white card dive, after such a long haul. I really felt I was at my peak performance, in terms of conditioning, during the Caribbean Cup competition at the end of May. So I am very grateful to have this massive success so late in the season. Thanks to everyone for all of their tremendous support.”

In summary: All in a day’s work for this amazing Kiwi athelete. It was his 18th world record.
