The British Freediving Association is pleased to announce a new UK record in the Women’s Dynamic Apnea discipline. On Saturday 28th June 2008, at the BFA Summer Outdoor Pool Competition, Liv Philip completed a performance of 122 metres. The new record beats the previous long-standing one of 119 metres, set by Hannah Stacey in 2005. Liv Philip, an AIDA freediving instructor from Camberwell, also holds the UK records for static apnea and dynamic apnea without fins.
The BFA Summer Outdoor Pool competition was organised by Matt Kitchen, and held at the newly refurbished Brockwell Lido, funded by the Heritage Lottery. A day of good weather heralded a good turnout, with impressive performances from several newcomers. For more information please visit the BFA website at http://www.britishfreediving.org
