Kalamata Greece – a new Australian record for variable weight has just been achieved by Brisbane’s own Ben Noble. President of the and a longtime AIDA Judge and Instructor, Noble successfully rode the sled down to 100 metres and resurfaced with a new national record — 2 minutes and :28 seconds later at the Mediterranean World Cup. Ben says his descent took exactly one minute and his return ascent was a “nice, albeit, long swim” of one minute and :28 seconds.
Ben Noble breaks his own depth record in this discipline, previously set in 2007 in Dahab. It is also of interest to note that Benny also beat his own No-Limits record dive of 80 metres, with this new 100m dive in Variable weight.
