Artnik plunges into new depths to improve her world record

Nassau – Slovenian freediver Alenka Artnik has further improved the constant weight world record she set three days ago by plunging as far as 122 metres deep at the Vertical Blue competition in the Bahamas.

“The dive was absolutely magical, so controlled and relaxed,” Artnik said in announcing her feat in a post on her Facebook profile.

Artnik set a new world record in her discipline three days ago, diving 120 metres deep into Dean’s Blue Hole on Long Island, the Bahamas.

This was after she entered the competition with a dive of 118 metres.

She said she would write a bit more about her latest achievement later, adding: “Now I just want to enjoy the moment and rest.”

She also posted photos of her newest record-breaking dive, which lasted 3:34 minutes.
