National Freediving Championships

Canadian national championships: don’t be fooled, it may be Summer, but it’s dark and cold water under there.

Canadian National Freediving Championships

Vancouver, BC, July 14-16, 2006

If you ever plan to dive on this side of the globe, you will need a flashlight to attach to your mask, a pair of gloves and a wetsuit thick enough to guard you from the cold…. welcome to thermoclines. If you don’t know what they are, you have not missed anything.

Well to be fair, along with the openwater competition for constant weight, there were also static and dynamic apnea events held at the University of British Columbia pool which provided the competitors with the added advantage of the after-comp hot tub option.

William left BC with an easy first place in all three events and became thus Canadian Champion 2006.
