This extends the current world record of 92m, held by Jeanine Grasmeijer (Netherlands), who set it during the Deepsea Challenge in Bonaire in 2016.

Zecchini will now go through WADA Anti-Doping tests and all footage will be reviewed by the judges later today.  Once both those things are completed the record will be made officially announced.
