Teams from Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia competed, with Singapore winning first place overall, Malaysia coming in second and Indonesia in third place in the women’s competition. In the men’s, Singapore also placed first, with Malaysia in both second and third place. Freediving is exploding amongst the middle classes of South East Asia and we hope to see some strong athletes competing internationally soon.
