The final day of OriginECN Vertical Blue has concluded in spectacular style.

The competition has also seen an unprecedented number of records set – never before in the history of freediving competitions have a total of 10 World Records and 42 National Records been set in a single competition.  The judges had to bring so many anti-doping test kits that they had their own baggage allowance on the flight over!
