William Trubridge – New world record in free diving

William Trubridge just set a new world record in free diving.  He completed the first ever dive, without fins and one single breath, to 100 meters.  This is a great clip in HD and it gives you a small sense of what a truly amazing feat this is.  Getting down to the 100 meters is relatively easy once you become negatively bouyant, apart from the fact that you need to equalise all the way down.  Its the getting back to the surface that is the truly amazing part of this clip.  To be able to do this without fins is truly remarkable. Watch the video here
