yes.. but... why not invite some women along (other than the "beauties" who are meeting everyone and riding around in limos with them of course)?

unlike Pierre to forget about the females! we freedive too!

Nothing sexist here, He invited freedivers that had done more than 7´30", and as far as I know only one girl has reached 7´. That is the reason. The time, not the sex.

It would seem, that one of the biggest factors limiting the development of this sport is the jealousy of less gifted individuals...

I think you are right ! I am also very shocked at this story...

Anybody should be considered innocent as long as he has not been proven guilty...

I see no reason why Tom should be banned from this competition...

The bigger question is why do they have pictures of Tom in their apnea photo gallery when they have not invited him? :hmm

Will someone please tell me what time it will be when it's 8 PM in Monaco? One or two hours ahead of GMT, oops UTC, I guess. With live apnea, Hockenhiem and the Tour time trial, it looks like Saturday will be a couch potato's delight. Maybe with all the sitting around and some carbo loading, I'll make 60 on Sunday.
Aloha

I think I missed something.... is there any way for the people who are not present to watch/get updates from this event? is there a net broadcast or even some tv broadcast?

Thanks Frank. It'll be fun to watch.
The O2 and CO2 workouts are back where they were at the peak last year (before the hip replacement), but I haven't been doing wet statics and the dry ones are 30-40 seconds less than last Dec. Still optimistic for later in the year. Just too many changes at my age and the emphasis is on getting leg strength back for constant.
Aloha

As far as I know the only broadcast is over the Internet. All information is on the main page of the contest.
There is a promotional video up.

Shinomia vs. Verbeck should be a close one!

Well, anything can happen, but I think the 4 first pairs are pretty predictable. Just rooting for Timo, I have no idea what range Nowicki is...
