Saturday, July 13, 2024 announces World Record contest winners announces World Record contest winners

The members of the team have announced the winners of their original world record contest, which was launched in conjunction with the attempts that resulted in new world records of Yasemin Dalkilic and David Lee in the Unassisted Constant Ballast category. The concept for the contest was for the participants to try and guess the final individual depths that both Dalkilic and Lee would achieve during their two weeks of training and record attempts. According to member Rudi Castineyra: "The response to the contest was great, we had more than 60 submissions and people really seemed to like the idea. Interestingly though, nobody guesses the final depths correctly, but we had several people who got the right total, so the prizes go to them. This was definitely fun to do and we plan to have more contests like this on future events". The prizes ranged from a free FREE (no pun intended) Advanced Freediver course, to Quantum dive watches to MFC specialized sunglasses. The winners were:

  1. Christian Redl
  2. Sam Kirby
  3. Halil Eser
  4. Cem Liman
  5. Alper Bilgil
  6. Alun George wishes to thank all participants for their support and enthusiasm and congratulates the winners!
