Freediving Carib Cup Day Two: A National Record for Walid Boudhiaf

Carib Cup Day Two: A National Record for Walid Boudhiaf

-

Walid Boudhiaf is a man of many nations. Progeny of a French mother and a Tunisian father, Walid now lives in South America and is currently making Roatán, the largest of HondurasBay Islands his home during the inaugural Caribbean Cup freediving competition. Day Two of the #CaribCup2013 proved to be a good day for Walid as he nabbed a new national title for Tunisia with a no-fins dive to 65 meters. “I’m actually trying my hand at all three disciplines this time,” offered Boudhiaf, who focused exclusively on CWT at last year’s Vertical Blue. “I haven’t practiced CNF in a long time and on top of that I only arrived at the platform 15 minutes before my official top time today, due to some issues on land so as you can imagine it was quite stressful!” Fortunately Walid was able to quickly calm down and deliver a clean, record-setting CNF performance in 3 minutes and :05 seconds.

Also setting their own national records today were Iru Balic of Venezuela and the Alejandro Lemus of Mexico, both setting the bar higher (and the plate lower) in Free Immersion with dives of 54 meters and 72 meters respectively.
