While three national records were broken on Day 3 of the 2022 Caribbean Cup freediving competition, a world record attempt didn’t go through as planned.
Italy’s Alessia Zecchini, who on Day 1 dove to 119m/390ft in search of a new women’s Constant Weight (CWT) world record but wound up with a red-card disqualification due to a protocol violation, suffered a blackout on Day 3 when vying for the same depth.
And Canada’s Matthieu Duvault was gunning for his second attempt at a men’s national Constant Weight Bi-Fins (CWTB) record with an 85m/279ft dive, but drew a red card disqualification for requiring assistance back to the surface.
On the positive side, the USA’s Tory George set a men’s national and continental Free Immersion (FIM) record with a dive to 102m/335ft.
Additionally, Honduras’s John Bodden set a men’s national Constant Weight No fins (CNF) record with a dive to 40m/131ft, and Argentina’s Ricardo Montans set a national men’s FIM record with a 98m/321.5ft dive.
