Freediver Breaks 100m on a Single Breath

William Trubridge, a New Zealand freediver, broke his own world record on Tuesday after descending 100 metres propelled only by his arms and legs. There are a number of different free diving categories, and this falls within “Constant Weight without Fins”.

Deeper dives have been achieved by freedivers in other categories. In fact there are quite a number of different freediving categories. For example, a diver can use fins (Constant Weight with Fins), pull themselves down the guideline (Free Immersion), use a weighted sled (Variable Weight), or use a weighted sled and a lift-bag (No Limits).

Congratulations to Mr. Trubridge.
