A new addition to the One Breath Spearfishing Expo set for January 2018 in Dubai has been announced: The International Underwater Target Shooting Championships will be taking place during the Expo.
The competition will be taking place in a purpose-built, 20-meter (66-foot) swimming pool, which will be set in the center of the expo. The tournament will feature individual competitors and teams representing both clubs and nations. The competition will be judged by a panel of professionals from the International Spearfishing Academy. The individual winner will be crowned as the “International Underwater Target Shooting Champion.”
During the competition, competitors will need to swim 10m/30ft underwater from the start line to a shooting line. Once there, they will have to wait for 30 seconds with the aid of a weighted object before firing a shot, retrieving their spear and swimming back to the start line to re-load. Participants will have a time limit of 10 minutes to execute three shots.
