AIDA 2008 Team World Championships (Finally)

Filed under: All, Competitions, Events — Stavros @ 6:47 am

molchanova_arrivee_surface.jpgSources inside AIDA have informed us that Apnea Academy Red Sea has requested to be the organizer of the 2008 AIDA Team World Championships. Apnea Academy Red Sea is located in the world renowned diving destination Sharm-El-Sheik and was responsible for successfully organizing the 2007 AIDA Individual World Championships a few months ago. This request certainly comes as a great relief to both AIDA athletes and officials as at the start of the year no organizer had made a firm commitment to organize the event.

The AIDA Team World Championships include the disciplines of Constant Weight, Static Apnea and Dynamic Apnea and each AIDA National organization are entitled to participate with teams (women’s and men’s) of three athlete. Each national team is judged based on the total score of all three athletes in all three diciplines. This setup makes the Team World Championships one of the most respected events in the freediving world.

Possible dates that are being discussed for the 2008 AIDA Team World Championships are between late September to October 2008. Stay tuned for more information…

Filed under: All, Competitions, Events — Tags: , , , , , — Francisco @ 1:47 pm

cnfFrom end January to mid February 2008, Koh Lanta will host a freediving meeting…first of the kind ever organised in Thailand before.

Koh Lanta is in the Andaman sea, west part of the country between Myanmar and Malaysia.

The Island is beautifull and offers all the conditions to host this encounter. Out in the warm sea, flora and fauna are trully amazing.

Everybody is welcome. Nevertheless the main objective of the organisers is to have the Thai freedivers coming and the ones living in the neighbooring countries such as Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Cambodia…
