According to AIDA Treasurer Sasa Jeremic:

“Tribute to Carla will be the first competition organized directly by AIDA. With this initiative, our organization would like to recognize Carla’s contribution to the growth of freediving as a sport, her continuous work and support for providing maximum safety conditions and fair play, as well as her determination in developing new freediving competition locations.”

AIDA is working on minimizing the competition participation fee for athletes, and the event’s revenue will be directed to supply freediving centers with customized safety kits.

The competition will be open to the entire AIDA community and organizers expect freedivers from all around Europe, the Americas, Australia, Asia and Africa.
