CAFA to join with USAA for the 2004 AIDA World Championships of Freediving

The Canadian Association of Freediving and Apnea (CAFA), official host of the 2004 AIDA World Team Championships of Freediving to be held in Vancouver, BC, August 4-12, announced today that the newly formed United States Apnea Association (USAA) will become a partner host, providing safety personnel, judges and volunteers for the upcoming event next August.

"The USAA has proven its commitment to excellence in the sport of Freediving and we are very excited to have them along side us as we show Canada to the world", said CAFA president Kirk Krack. "The World Team Championships is of considerable importance on the world stage and it is of the utmost importance that we find the very best support available to compliment our local skills and resources."

The partnership between CAFA and USAA, both of which share similar democratic ideologies, comes on the heels of CAFA’s support in USAA’s bid to become the official AIDA chapter for the United States.
