A Sneak Preview of PFI's Formula 3 Freediving 2011

Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands — Ladies and Gentlemen Start Your Engines! Performance Freediving International (PFI) has organized six international teams of three freediving athletes per team, six brand new Dive Xtras custom painted scooters, a handsome purse of prize money $$ — in otherwords the Formula 3 Freediving race is on! Gold, Silver, Red, Blue, Green and Purple – each competing team will wear a unified color that matches their new F3F scooter as they race around a lap course that will be set around Cayman Islands newest wreck, the USS Kittywake. See an animated rendering of the Scooter Race on Dive Xtras Cudas here below.

Who will reign supreme? Which team will take the cash prize? Can Japan’s beloved freediving champ Junko Kitihama best the Brazilian bombshell Carolina Schrappe? Will the current U.S. women’s depth holder Erin Magee outlast Canada’s stalwart Paralympian Silver Medalist Kelly Smith?

Stay tuned to DeeperBlue for updates on what promises to be the most amazing, one-of-a-kind underwater event of 2011, brought to you by the one and only Performance Freediving International.
