The OriginECN Vertical Blue competition at Deans Blue Hole is in full swing and the freedivers from around the world have kept pace. Today we have 25 performances on tap, with one world record attempt from Alessia Zecchini, and the Diveye and Paralenz cameras are ready to capture every moment and every angle.

OriginECN Vertical Blue 2018 – Start List Day 4

Alexey Molchanov has thrown down the gauntlet for William Trubridge with two huge dives in Constant Weight (CWT) and Constant Weight No-Fins (CNF), and Trubridge answered with a clean, first dive on day two of #VB2018 (in the discipline of free immersion); he hopes to repeat this card today during a 122m attempt in constant weight. But will the pressures of organizing an enormous event whilst competing in it get to him? Stay tuned to the live feed to see destiny reveal itself at Deans Blue Hole in the Bahamas.

And while you wait, check out the wrap-up video of Act I (of the three act drama) here below

#VB2018 will keep rolling out amazing performances which you binge watch every second of later on VB Freediving (Vertical Blue’s YouTube channel) but for now, cross your fingers for your favorite athletes and hold your breath! We know the results will be stunning.
