New freediving world record set in Limassol

93 4

A new women’s freediving world record was set in Limassol on Friday when Jennifer Wendland descended to a depth of 93 metres.

Holding only one breath and powered by a set of fins, the German was ecstatic after beating the two-year-old record.

Wendland, who started competing in 2015, was back at the scene of her first competitive appearance, saying afterwards that it was great to return to Cyprus.
“Limassol feels so comfortable to me, especially under the safe guidance of Savvas Savva at Free2dive diving centre.”

Wendland is now looking forward to competing at the world championships in September, which will also be held in Limassol.

AIDA International is the adjudicating body for freediving world records. For more information on AIDA: https://www.aidainternational.org/
