Performance Freediving International Expands Into China

-

Freediving training agency Performance Freediving International (PFI) is expanding into China with the announcement that they are partnering with champions freediver and PFI Instructor Trainer Jessea Wenjie Lu.

China is a key market for most Freediving agencies as Freediving is growing at a tremendous rate, to the point where the first international freediving pool competition occurred earlier this year, organized by Lu.

Lu holds twenty Chinese national freediving records across all competitive disciplines and has been instrumental in energizing the Chinese freediving community in recent years as she has steadily compiled medals in elite competitions around the world.

Kirk Krack, CEO and Founder of PFI had this to say to DeeperBlue.com:

“China has some of the most eager and enthusiastic freedivers in the world and we are thrilled to be able to offer our system of education to students there. Jessea has done such an amazing job, not only in her own development as a world-class athlete, but also as a top notch instructor.  She’s a true leader and someone who gets things done.  She has been instrumental in developing interest in our sport in China and beyond, and we expect she will continue to inspire as she expands the PFI curriculum and presence in the region.”

As PFI’s Regional Director in China, Lu will be coordinating PFI’s freedive courses, from entry level through professional level, in the region in 2017 and beyond, as well as continuing to  organize freedive competitions and events to further engage the area’s freedivers.
