Herbert Nitsch declines AIDA Judges

DeeperBlue.com has learnt that Herbert Nitsch, who is due to attempt an 800ft / 244m No-Limits dive as part of the “Breitling Extreme 800″ event between 4 – 6 June 2012 in Santinori (Greece), has declined judges from AIDA (the international freediving federation) due to some form of disagreement around Suunto sponsorship.

This would mean that Herbert’s No Limit dive would be an unsanctioned event according to AIDA rules and any dive completed would not count towards any AIDA International rankings.
