Cyprus 2004 Coverage – Constant Weight Subscriptions

Well I warned you things would get exciting and they just did with the constant weight announcements this morning. Carlos Coste and Herbert Nitsch have both subscribed 102 metres but Martin has out maneuvered them with a 103 announcement.

I stood next to Martin at the board and he laughed, ‘I wish I had put the same as those guys, it would have made it more fun’. He knows that he can’t get the world record without the tag and so will have to go for it.

Here are the highlights of the next few days for you. These are some of the top subscriptions in the order that they dive:

Day One

  • Bill Stromberg 67m
  • Hayden Welch 65m
