I often thought it would be great to be part of the olympic games.
And we know freediving is an old sport so why not. We see Beachball and other things on TV at the olympic games, so why not freediving.

Good idea!
From what I know, the only untradittional water sport that has any chance to become an Olympic discipline is Swimming with fins. I know for sure that CMAS has been trying for ages to promote it but so far it didn't happen. As far as the apnea goes - I don't think this is possible in any near future.
However, I've heard of organization that is trying to embace all non Olympic sports. They organize paralel games of some kind. I am sure our local Federation has been approached by them.

I'd love to here any additional info on the subject...



I thing I will be good..... The best discipline for the olimpic game as someone said Will be apnea dinamic in pool.because people can very easy have acces to this event- another question that I have- Most of the game in the olimpic game are very dinamic as classical swimming.runing .ect..what about presenting an static apnea on TV ..How people will response-will they get boring?

What is your opinion and which of the discipline can fit for the olimpic game??

the other and The big different that freediving in a olimpic game can make is that : "This will eradicate all the different that the diferent freediving organizacion have... permiting all freedivers to compete together as a group..esa sera la gran diferencia en admitir que el freedidving sea parte de un juego olimpico pues erradicaria todas las distenciones entre las diferentes organizaciones - logrando asi que todo los deportistas compitan juntos
