Adam Stern of Australia made a blazing fast dive to 104m constant weight, astonishingly in just under three minutes, and Dean Chaouche of Great Britain managed to finally put himself in the positive on the leaderboard with a new National Record in no-fins with a dive to 78m in a dive time of three minutes and :17 seconds. David Kent, a previous no fins record holder for Great Britain, offered his congratulations to Chaouche:

“Awesome dive Dean. Huge congrats, looked very clean. Wish you well for remainder of comp mate!”

It was also another great day for Sophie Jacquin of France who completed a personal best dive to 80m CWT — there’s nothing better than a personal best! Rosibel Molina of Cuba achieved another National record for Cuba in Free Immersion as well with a dive to 52m.
