Lyon, France to Host Pool Freediving Team Competition In May


If you’re a competitive pool freediver and want to test your mettle (or just need an excuse to vacation in France), you might want to check out the Open Apnée Lyon competition scheduled for this coming May.

Open Apnée Lyon organizes a freediving team competition that will take place on May 25th, 2019 in Lyon, France. Each team will consist of two female and three male freedivers.

For the athletes, Open Apnée Lyon is an opportunity to work as a team with their friends, and also to get closer to other athletes they have encountered in the usual competitions, through this particular event.

Each freediver has to participate in at least two events, among them static apnea, dynamic apnea with or without fins, as well as 100-meter or 8×50 meter speed trials.

A complete description in English of the event is available at openapneelyon.com. If this sounds like something that whets your whistle, you can register here.
