Alenka Artnik, Slovenia, set a new world record with her 120-metre-deep freedive under her own physical power.

In a time of three minutes 28 seconds, Artnik became the first female to reach 120 metres.

The Slovenian completed the record at Vertical Blue in the Bahamas.
She said: "On my ascent I was very focused on technique but at the same time I just seemed to melt into the water.

"Diving felt amazing! Not many men can dive that deep and the number is really crazy! It’s hardcore but I was just following my progress and I knew exactly what to do and it makes me really happy.”

This footage was filmed on July 20.
