Club Med Turks and Caicos to host Tanya Streeter

"Club Med, the world’s leading provider of active lifestyle vacations, will host Red Bull Athlete, Tanya Streeter, World Champion Freediver, on July 25th through August 21st at Club Med Turkoise, Turks and Caicos. This 29-year-old world class athlete with exceptional aquatic abilities aims to prove that she can go deeper than ever before using her strong psychological, physical and physiological endurance capabilities. Currently holding multiple World Records and having previously surpassed her male competitors, Tanya will discover new depths of herself and her sport in the crystal blue Turks and Caicos waters off Club Med by pursuing a record depth of 140m/460ft in the No Limits category.??Hosting this fabulous champion is a natural part of Club Med’s ongoing mission to be the leader in active lifestyle vacations,?? says John Vanderslice, President and CEO Club Med Americas. ??Club Med is known for having the most innovative sports and activities at our many Villages — including freediving! With her strong characteristics and Club Med spirit, we are proud to host Tanya at Turkoise, Turks and Caicos so she can excel in her sport of freediving.??

John Skippings, Director of Tourism in the Turks and Caicos Islands comments, ??The Turks and Caicos is known for excellent and award-winning diving and we are pleased to be supporting Tanya to make such a world class achievement in our world class destination.??

Acknowledging the adversities of diving so deep, Streeter reminds us ??There is no such thing as courage without fear?? and rationalizes the inherent risks of freediving, disciplining herself with the motivation and intelligence of an elite athlete.

At Club Med Turkoise, Turks and Caicos where scuba diving is the prominent activity in water and the trapeze is the sport to do above sea level, Tanya Streeter will perform training dives throughout her stay and on August 17th she will aim for the new World Record of 140m/460ft.

Stay tuned to Deeper Blue for more details!"
