Alessia Zecchini Sets New Women’s Freediving World Record To 102m

Italian Freediver Alessia Zecchini has set a new World Record in Freediving by completing a Constant Weight (CWT) dive to 102m in three minutes and :30 seconds.

Alessia’s new world record was finally set during Day Six of the Vertical Blue 2017 freediving competition at Deans Blue Hole in the Bahamas. Zecchini had previously only garnered red cards at her inaugural Vertical Blue, one red card for a failed record attempt at free-immersion, and then two failed WR attempts of this otherwise vexing CWT dive to 102 meters.

It seems the weather was also in agreement that today was the day for a new World Record from Alessia.

“The cold wind and rain stopped at the exact moment Alessia was on the platform, and then sun came out and birds started chirping!” stated Francesca Koe,  DeeperBlue.com Editor-at-Large and Vertical Blue’s Chief of Media.

The previous female world record in CWT was held by the late Natalia Molchanova who set the record back in 2011.
