South African Beth Neale Breaks Pure Apnea National & Continental Freediving Record

-

The Pure Apnea South African and continental record for the Dynamic No Fins (DNF) freediving discipline was recently broken by 35-year-old Beth Neale.

Neale broke the previous national and continental record of 43 meters (141 feet) with a 47-meter (154-foot) dive in Sodwana Bay off the KwaZulu-Natal coast.

According to the South African news site IOL, a pair of judges from Pure Apnea certified her record.

In December 2016, Neale dived to 55 meters (180 feet) for a Pure Apnea Free Immersion (FIM) record. Read more about that feat here.
