Hello Gerard,
I'm contacting you in relation to my previous emails about our research study investigating the physcological and physiological differences between trained and untrained freedivers. Currently, we are in the midst of testing and are seeking both trained and untrained persons to participate. Having contacted you previously I was wondering if you were still interested in participating and if you were, whether you would be available attend our lab at QUT (KG) on a Friday afternoon. If you are still interested and would like to participate I would be more than happy to forward to you an information package and informed consent form for your perusal. It would be great to have you as trained subject in this study and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
