Cyprus 2004 Coverage – Photo Competition

Note: Deadline extended – Last day to enter!

Yes, you’ve waited with anticipation for this photo quiz and here it is! I’ve been noticing that certain male freedivers have developed a penchant for small amounts of facial hair. Two of them may shave the rest of their body hair off, but will they get rid of the tuft? Hell no! One of our mystery men told me that it was there for the ‘laydees’… After that I didn’t dare ask the rest…

The Prizes

So for all you freedivers with not a lot to do at work today here is your challenge! You have to work out who each freediver is from the clues given. There will be a draw held selecting the first four correct answers (pulled out of a virtual hat) emailed to Top prizes are as follows:

  • 1st Prize – A place on a Performance FreeDiving Clinic of your choice
  • 2nd Prize – A Sweatshirt and T-Shirt
  • 3rd Prize – An unused BIC razor!
  • 4th Prize – A novelty false moustache kit!

There is also a bonus prize given to the first person who can correctly identify the feet in the picture from top left going clockwise.

Note: 1st Prize will be a place on the clinic only. Accomodation and flights to the clinic location are not included. 2nd, 3rd and 4th prizes will be mailed at expense. The Bonus prize will be available for us in the store for a period of 3 months.
