Freediving World Record holder William Trubridge isn’t sitting on his laurels following his exploits earlier this year at Vertical Blue and the Caribbean Cup.
Trubridge recently announced he would attempt to break his own World Record in the Constant Weight No Fins (CNF) discipline on July 21 at Deans Blue Hole in the Bahamas with a dive to 102 meters/335 feet.

Trubridge set a new World Record last May with a Free Immersion (FIM) dive to a mind-blowing depth of 124m/407ft with a dive time of 4min 54sec.
This month’s attempt will be Trubridge’s second try at breaking his own record. He previously attempted it in 2014, only to come up short. As he said recently on his Facebook page:
“Training has been going well so far, and I’m looking forward to the challenge and the opportunity.”
Michael Taylor from Trubridge sponsor Steinlager told the New Zealand Herald:
“Clearly his recent dives are a sure sign his current form is on track to give it his best and make good on his promise.”
