Barbadian sets national freediving record
A Barbadian has set a new national freediving record at the Blue Element Freediving International Challenge in Soufriere, Dominica.
Freediving, free-diving, free diving or skin diving is a form of underwater diving that relies on divers’ ability to hold their breath until resurfacing rather than on the use of a breathing apparatus such as scuba gear.
“I’ve never done this before!” exclaimed “Hanna” after her dive. “I wasn’t sure what the bottom plate would look like at depth so initially I descend a bit past it, but then I was able to grab a tag and make my return ascent. My dive was overall very chill. I am extremely proud to be the first Bajan to take home a national title.”
