Kalamata Freedivers Are Offering A Monthlong, Free Training Course Prior To AIDA World Championships


The folks at Kalamata Freedivers are offering a month’s worth of free training to one lucky freediver who’s planning to compete in the 2023 AIDA Depth World Championships.

“We know how hard it is to be a young athlete with big dreams. We also know the amount of training behind every medal.”

The lucky winner will get a month of free training by Kalamata Freedivers, being guided by Marianna Gillespie, a six-time World Champion and AIDA World Record holder.

The winner will be able to join daily training sessions, run on the competition setup with the motorized counterbalance system, sonar, deep safety with a scooter, countdown, tags and video footage of your dive.

The last day to apply is May 27th, 2023 and the lucky winner will be chosen, based on his/her social media presence, the following day.

To enter, go to the Facebook post announcing the contest and follow the instructions.
