New Zealander William Trubridge has broken his own freediving world record by swimming to a depth of 122 metres in the Bahamas.

The world record is the 16th of Trubridge's career, and surpasses the record he already held of 121 metres.

The successful attempt was made at the Vertical Blue event at Dean's Blue Hole in the Bahamas, the deepest known salt water blue hole in the world.
