William Trubridge Shatters (His Own) Record for Deepest Dive
In April, at the 2016 Vertical Blue contest, the world's premier free-diving competition, William Trubridge, the man known as the human fish, broke the record for the deepest dive. Trubridge, a 35-year-old from New Zealand, was underwater for 4 minutes and 34 seconds, reaching a total depth of 397 feet. What's particularly amazing about this record is that two days prior at Vertical Blue, Trubridge had already bested the world record (which stood at 388 feet) by three feet, bringing it to 391 feet. But he wasn't satisfied. His second attempt proved fruitful, extending the record by another six feet.
