From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:09 pm on 3 December 2014

World champion New Zealand freediver, William Trubridge, has attempted to set a new world unassisted freedive record. This morning, the 34-year-old attempted the 102m dive at Dean's Blue Hole in the Bahamas, but had to abandon the effort just 20m from the surface. Trubridge is the world's best free immersion diver, he holds a double world record and the record for the 'constant weight without fins' free-diving discipline.
