Constant Ballast World Open Championships

“F.R.E.E. is happy to announce its first international competition. During the three years that have passed after our foundation in 1998, we feel confident that we finally have accumulated the knowledge and experience to launch this event and to make it a success.

This championship reflects the very particular and specific points of view of F.R.E.E. regarding freediving competitions and therefore it is a very different event from any other so far organized in freediving.

The event will take place from September 1st to 8th of 2001. Turkey has been selected from all candidates as the Host of the competition, specifically the town of Bodrum, located on the Southwest part of this country. Participation will be limited to 60 freedivers in total, all of whom must register as part of a team.
