Awesome: Freediver Breaks World Record For Deepest Dive, Reaching Over 350ft

 

This incredible world record attempt saw a dedicated freediver reach the staggering depth of 107 METERS (351 FEET) – more than the length of a football field. Reaching a depth that no woman in the sport had hit before, Alessia Zecchini held breath for more than three-and-a-half minutes in order to complete the remarkable feat. In the footage, relaxed Alessia, from Rome, Italy, can be seen calmly swimming to the base of the 107-meter rope as support divers surround her. In the medium she competes in – constant weight apnea – freedivers descend and ascend using fins or a monofin, and they are allowed to use their arms without pulling on the rope or changing their ballast.
