We’ve heard that despite reaching her target depth of 73m (240ft) today, Australian Freediver Amber Bourke suffered a Blackout on the surface and so didn’t manage to get the Constant Weight No Fins (CNF) World Record she was aiming for.

In a video statement posted to her Facebook page, she told her fans that she hit 73m feeling “awesome” and that her “equalization was great”. She also admitted that she “celebrated in my head a little too soon” and meant that she didn’t breath properly on the surface that caused the blackout.
Bourke is taking a day off to recover and has said that “so long as it feels right” she will attempt the World Record again on Wednesday 28th March 2018.
