William Trubridge 101 meters world record dive


Here is William Trubridge from New Zealand attempting to break the world record of freediving the deepest in history. Diving straight down with no fins, no oxygen, no assistance, in an effort to make awareness that we need to protect our wildlife, and specifically our dolphins. Or as he writes on his website “1 hectometer for the Hector’s dolphin.” Notice how he stops swimming at around 40 meters, because at that point his body is so squeezed together by the pressure, that it is heavier than water and just falls. Which means he won’t just float up again, but has to swim :-S
