AIDA World Depth Championships Day 4 – Llinas, Leyva Nab Men’s National Records


Day 4 of the AIDA World Depth Championship freediving competition in Roatan, Honduras saw two new men’s national records set in the Free Immersion (FIM) discipline.

Colombia’s Alex Llinas added to his nations Constant Weight with Bifins (CWTB) record set on Day 2 with a successful dive to 100m/328ft for a national FIM record.

In an Instagram post, Llinas wrote:

“Today I joined the triple digit club and became the 1st Colombian to achieve 100m in competition. 100m is a benchmark every freediver looks forward to. It’s so surreal to have gotten here so quickly, I am beyond excited!”

Cuba’s Jordan Leyva also set a new national FIM record with a 76m/249ft dive.

On an Instagram post, Leyva wrote:

“I can’t describe how happy I am after my first attempt had failed, it was a dive with good feelings … it’s my first dive in this discipline this year since I hadn’t trained for it but the result said it all. … There are still two more disciplines where hopefully I’ll have the same results.”
