Longest freediving set world record by William Trubridge - New Zealand

Longest freediving set world record by William Trubridge - New Zealand

A New Zealand freediver has set the world record for the longest dive without using fins by plunging 116m (380ft) into the Atlantic Ocean.

William Trubridge battled nitrogen narcosis as he held his breath for four minutes and nine seconds to break the record for the deepest free immersion dive on Sunday at Dean’s Blue Hole, the world’s deepest underwater sinkhole, in the Bahamas.

The 29-year-old performed the dive during the Vertical Blue Suunto Dive-Off competition where he had already set another record – for freediving completely unassisted, a discipline called “constant weight, no fins” to 92m (301ft) – last week.

Wearing a specially designed silicon-coated wetsuit, Mr Trubridge used a form of breaststroke to propel himself down to without the aid of oxygen.


“It was hard to get the tag from the bottom as I struggled with some narcosis,” Mr Trubridge said afterwards. “But it’s great to have the free immersion record again.”

It was Mr Trubridge’s 10th world record, and puts him in first place for the competition to find the world’s best all-round freediver.

Later on his Facebook page Mr Trubridge wrote of his disappointment at not reaching an extra 2m (7ft).

“So 118m (387ft) CWT was just out of my reach today,” he wrote on the social networking site. “I managed to equalise to the plate, wasted some time fumbling for the tag, then set off for the surface. I had to use my arms a little from 20m, but reached the surface and struggled through a samba to do the surface protocol, going overtime by several seconds. That was my best shot, so I will concentrate on the other disciplines for the remaining days.”

During free immersion events, divers must retrieve a velcro tag from a metal plate set at the specified depth before returning to the surface. They are not allowed to use any equipment such as fins during their ascent, but are able to use a rope to pull themselves upwards.

The previous free immersion record was set by Martin Štěpánek of the Czech Republic in the waters off Sharm el-Sheikh in Egypt last year.

Freediving has become an increasingly popular extreme sport. In April last year British freediver Sara Campbell broke a female world record by diving 96m (314ft) at Dean’s Blue Hole, holding her breath for three minutes, 36 seconds, before safely returning to the surface.

World's smallest Lightweight newborn horse set World Record

                    World's smallest Lightweight newborn horse Picture

BARNSTEAD, N.H. — A diminutive horse born in New Hampshire could lay claim to the world record for lightweight foal.

The pinto stallion named Einstein weighed just 6 pounds and measured 14 inches in height when he was born Friday in Barnstead, N.H. Those proportions fit a human baby just about right but are downright tiny for horse, even a miniature breed like Einstein.

Dr. Rachel Wagner, Einstein’s co-owner, says the Guinness Book of Records lists the smallest newborn horse as weighing in at 9 pounds.

Breeders say that unlike the current record holder, Thumbelina, Einstein shows no signs of dwarfism. Instead, he’s just a tiny horse.

world's largest cake made to look like a baby grand piano set World Record - Kalamazoo


What is likely the world's largest cake made to look like a baby grand piano is on display in Kalamazoo. Workers from Confection Bakery spent part of the morning hauling the 300 lbs. cake across the Kalamazoo Mall.
It's made to commemorate the Gilmore Keyboard Festival.
"They have a baby grand piano that is in their lobby that is just gorgeous, and we wanted to emulate that and tie in some of the logo elements to their brochure and their website of the cake design," says Giti Henri, owner of the Confection Bakery.  "That's what we did, and that's how we ended up with a cake that's four feet wide, by six feet long, and five feet high."
The piano cake was made with 200 lbs. of sugar, 17 lbs. of shortening, and ten pounds of icing.
It took workers at the Confection Bakery 21 days of planning and 183 hours of labor to make and decorate the piano cake.

World's First Full Face Transplant Surgery in Vall d'Hebron Hospital - Spain

World's First Full Face Transplant Surgery in Vall d'Hebron Hospital - Spain.

A hospital in Spain announced that it had carried out the world's first full-face transplant. The Vall d'Hebron Hospital in Barcelona said the patient, a young man, was given an entirely new face, including skin, jaws, chin, nose, cheeks, teeth and muscles.  It said the 24-hour operation was performed in late March by a 30-member medical team.

In a statement on Friday, the hospital said the patient lost his face in an accident five years ago and has since been unable to swallow, speak, or breathe properly, and had to breathe and be fed through tubes. Speaking on Friday during a news conference at the hospital, Doctor Joan Pere Barret, who led the medical team that carried out facial transplant, said the patient asked to look in a mirror one week after the surgery, "and he reacted very calmly and with satisfaction" and in writing said "he said he was very grateful and satisfied." Dr Barret said that the man "absolutely does not look like a donor patient."

Barret declined to name the patient or give details of the accident in which the man lost most of his face, saying only that he was a Spaniard between 20 and 40 years old and was recovering well. The man cannot yet speak, eat or smile, but can see and swallow saliva, the surgeon said. The patient underwent psychiatric tests before the operation to determine if he would be able to confront having a totally new face, the hospital said. He is expected to remain hospitalised for two months.

Other transplant experts lauded the surgery but were not sure it could technically be called 'full-face.'

In Britain, the UK Facial Transplantation Research Team called the Spanish operation "the most complex face transplantation operation there has probably been in the world to date." It stopped short, however, of calling it the world's first full-face transplant. Barret said the operation involved removing what was left of the man's face and giving him a replacement "in one piece."

Barret said there have been 10 partial face transplant operations carried out in the world so far but that this is the first one involving a person's whole face. The world's first partial face transplant was carried out on a Isabelle Dinoire in France in November 2005. The 38 year old divorced mother of two received a new nose, chin and mouth from a brain-dead donor after being mauled by her pet Labrador. The 15-hour operation took place at the Amiens Teaching Hospital.

World's Youngest Golfer set world record by Eleanor Gamble

World's Youngest Golfer set world record by Eleanor Gamble.At five years old, Eleanor Gamble has become one of the youngest golfers to achieve every player's lifetime ambition of sinking a hole in one.

The 3ft 5in youngster managed to drive her ball 86 yards over a lake, round a bunker and straight into a cup on the par three hole - to rapturous applause from fellow golfers.

She was playing in a juniors contest with her brother Jacob, ten, at Cambridge Lakes golf course on Thursday.

From her home in nearby West Wratting today, Eleanor said: 'I was very excited.

'I am going to keep playing golf, and see if I will be better than my brother.'

Her mother Wendy, 39, a dental hygienist, told how Eleanor took up golf two years ago.

'She doesn't have much idea how incredible this is,' she said.

'She will realise more when she grows up.'

Her father David Gamble, 34, said Eleanor is still walking around in a daze.

'She keeps saying "I can't believe I got a hole-in-one",' said Mr Gamble.

'We had her great grandparents over from Ireland and we took them to the course to show off our son Jacob who is 10.

'He is really quite good but Eleanor has stolen his limelight.'

Mr Gamble said that when Eleanor started off she was just aiming to get to the other side of a stretch of water on the hole.

'There were about 15 people on the tee watching,' said Mr Gamble.

'She got the ball over the water and then it hopped over a bunker and someone shouted that she had got it in. We were all quite speechless really.

'I think she might have broken a record because the youngest female hole-in-one golfer listed on the Guinness World Records website is by an eight-year-old from America.

'Eleanor has smashed the record by three years. We submitted an application and now we're waiting to hear back from them.

'We are all very proud of her, especially her brother Jacob who plays for the county.'

Owner of Cambridge Lakes, a nine-hole, par three course, Bob Barnes added: 'We get plenty of hole-in-ones because all of our holes are a par three so they are within range.

'I've been at the club for 10 years and this is the first time anything like this has happened though. It is incredible.'
