Four-time Paralympic champion Wojtek Czyz will be attempting to set two CMAS freediving world records later this month.

The former athlete, founder of the non-profit organization Sailing4Handicaps, is attempting CMAS World Records for disabled athletes in two freediving disciplines as the first above-knee amputee without the use of a prosthetic leg.

The attempts will take place in Tahiti, French Polynesia, on April 27th and 28th in the ocean (Constant Weight with Fin — CWT) and pool (Dynamic With Fin — DYN). Czyz will be using a single fin on his right leg during both attempts.

During the preparation phase, Czyz has been trained and mentored by champion freediver Herbert Nitsch, who himself was wheelchair-bound for many months due to severe decompression sickness.

The two freedivers’ motivations are to inspire others (with and without disabilities) to explore their innate and extraordinary human potential.
