Paragraph aquanaut
Jan 13, 2002
Dear friends,

The family of the record freediver Benjamin Franz has opened a bank account for donations for the recovery of the great athlete. As we all know Benjamin suffered a tragic incident during his training in Egypt for breaking the No Limits record. His condition is very serious and I am sure he needs all the support the freediving community is able to provide.

IAFD has published the touching letter of Benjamin's brother Alexander where all the details can be found. You can read it on this URL.

This message is especially for all representatives of the freediving equipment producing or distributing companies. All the efforts of athlethes like Benjamin are contributing directly to the freediving industry.

Now it's your turn...
