Long Island Bahamas — On the last weekend of William Trubridge’s Vertical Blue 2011, Natalia Molchanova got what she came for a new world record. Natalia performed a clean dive to an amazing 100 meters under constant ballast in 3 minutes and :42 seconds (to take back the title of ‘deepest female’ from Sara Campbell) on Saturday April 16, 2011. It was a hard fought record for Natalia, having realized a few false starts with several black-outs during the competition, but her patience and her skill won out. Natalia Molchanova now holds all the world records in every self-propelled discipline in freediving: CWT, CNF, FIM, DYN, DNF. Molchanova’s invincible prowess may just keep her the top freediving female champion for some time to come.
