Carolina Schrappe Dives to a New South American Record

Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands — Carolina Schrappe has returned home. Home to the deep blue waters of Cayman where the Brazilian beauty feels most comfortable. Having missed the last two annual PFI competitions, Carol could not wait to get back in the water this year and make her mark at Deja Blue II — which is exactly what she did. On Sunday, May 8th, under constant ballast, Carol executed an absolutley elegant dive to 74 meters. Schrappe’s speedy dive took only 2 minutes and :10 seconds to complete, and with it she regains her national title as well as the South American title for CWT. “I am so happy!”, Carol exclaimed “this dive was my Mother’s Day present to myself.”
