British Freediver Rebecca Coales Launches Crowdfunding Campaign For World Championships

Crowdfunding is all the rage these days but still relatively new to the Freediving world.  This hasn’t stopped Rebecca Coales, 5 time British National Freediving Champion, seeking a modest £1,150 ($1,800) to allow her to train and gain entry to the 2015 AIDA Pool World Championships in Belgrade this summer.

The funding she is asking for is to allow her to:

  • Pay for airfare, entry and accomodation at the AIDA World Championships in Belgrade
  • Pay for two extra months of strength training
  • Pay for sports massage and chiropractic treatment once a month
  • Receive technical guidance and mentoring from my coach

She is seeking £1,150 ($1,800) by 13th March 2015 via her “Breathless” Crowdfunding page.
