Saudi Arabian Record Falls At New Zealand Freediving National Championships

The New Zealand Freediving National Depth Championships were recently held at Lake Taupo on 20th – 22nd March 2015.  10 Freedivers from New Zealand, Australia and Saudi Arabia competed for glory in the National Championships in Constant Weight (CWT), Constant Weight No Fins (CNF) and Free Immersion (FIM) disciplines.

The new Saudi Arabian National Record was set by Ali Al Kalifa on the 2nd day of the competition by diving to a depth of 36m in Free Immersion (FIM) in 1min 54sec.  Looking and feeling relaxed Al Kalifa decided to go deeper on Day 3 and re-set the record to 40m.

There is a lot of training involved for all athletes, Ali particularly has put a lot of hard-work in to achieve these national records said Phil Clayton, competition organiser.
