Two New US Static National Records Set at AIDA Team Freediving World Championships

The United States Apnea Association (USAA) has announced that Deron Verbeck, a USAA member, set a new national record in the freediving discipline of static apnea with a breath hold of seven minutes and twenty-two seconds.  This performance surpasses the previous record of seven minutes and twenty-one seconds held by Bill Graham.  Jessica Wilson set a new US mark with a performance of six minutes twenty-seven seconds breaking her mother’s, Annabel Briseno, record of six minutes twenty-one seconds that at the time was a world record. 

Both performances were part of team competition held during December 2006 in Hurghada, Egypt as part of the fifth AIDA Team Freediving World Championships.
