Still pending AIDA ratification of course but...

Annabel made 6.21 !

:D :D :D :D :D :D

DB's own Bill Graham also set a new US record at 6.56, and the way he came up looked like he was good for a lot more.

Big Congrats to Annabel and Bill !


Wow quite a lot of records for one day, congratulations to all 3 athletes.

Wal didn't know you were gonna do an Aussie static record till yesterday, was the 6:10 your pb or did you do more in training. Now all you gotta do is dive to 71 (cough cough hopefully 80) m and have 3 aussie records :cool:

Way to go brah.

Congratulations all of you!

Congratulations to the World Record Annabel :)

And good luck with the free immersion and the constant weight later.

May the force be with you. ;)

Best wishes,

Lotta and Mia

BTW: Lotta competes in Copenhagen Open next weekend :D

Congrats to Annabel and the rest of the team!

Mia, how's Lotta doing in training with static? Possible WR next weekend?
Congrats to all three athletes. However, I must admit that I'm annoyed that the group's demographics have deprived me of my favorite lame-o excuses, "I'm getting too old for this s***t", and "not bad for a guy whose best years are behind him". I guess I'll just need to start trying harder.

2003 surely holds the record for most apnea records in a single year.

Ahh...New meaning in the words" Respect for your elders!" :D :D

Congratulations and like Pezman I agree, I can't use age as anything except as incentive to go further!

Congrats to Annabel, Bill and Wal.
Great to see that age isn't that important in our sport.

Any news about Annabel's further record attempts?

Congratulations Annabel! What an amazing performance:)

Matt, that picture you posted is just incredible. Between the clarity of the water and the way it all came together, I love it.

If there are any more like it of Annabel's dives, please post them.


Totally agree that pic is absoultely incredible. The vis is extreme.

Also what type of fins are those ones that say "Blue blood bros" they look totally sick I want some :cool:

Fantastic Performance and picture. The “Blue blood bros" fins seem to have the V on the end like C4’s, but I don’t see the side rails, like the ones you see Kirk Krack wearing in the photo. They also don’t have the fiber checkers Kirk’s do and they seem narrower. I believe that is Martin Stepanek wearing the other Performance Freediving suit and he is wearing his plastic Omers. I think they are blue and are less stiff than the black Millennium Competition. For some reason he has yellow lettering on the bottom that I think used to say Cressi. Not sure about that one.

Kirk likes to use his C4’s all the time; put Martin only uses them for constant ballast. He prefers his old Omers because of the maneuverability without the tracking rails. He has done 200 meters dynamics with these fins. When we asked him what he was going to use for his record dynamic record attempt next month, mono’s or bi’s, he said he still had not made up his mind. Apparently, after being a mono race swimmer for several years, mono fin technique isn’t something he has to practice and can switch back and forth whenever he wants.

Check out her breath up for static - on her back with a neck pillow. Is this a common practice?

What event is this that Anna, Bill, Wals are at?
