Here is a summary list of the records that were set in Kona recently, over a 10 day period:

Annabel Briseno

Bill Graham

Walter Steyn

What happened on the announced attempt for the Women's Constant Weight record?

Canceled / failed?
Annabel had Sinus problems during the FI attempt. She actually had problems equalising during warmups, and even stopped a few times during the descent of her world record dive. She made the dive easily, much to the suprise of myself and many of the people there on the day. :D

Still she surfaced with a nose bleed so there was definitely something wrong. For the costant Ballast, only a few days later, it was the last day she could attempt any records so she decided to just try it anyway. Again sinus problems slowed down her descent, she did not make the dive clean. Still 2 world records is a great achievement, I don't think anyone has ever done more then 2 in a 10 day period ?
I wish I was half the freediver she is ;)
