This weekend, the Splash Freediving New Zealand Pool Nationals 2017 will be held in Auckland. PADI are proud to be a sponsor of the event and to support the growth of freediving not only in New Zealand but around the world.
The growth of the competition in recent years mirrors the growth of the sport, and this year will again see a high calibre of athletes competing.
Amongst the competitors will be the current New Zealand National Champion and Pan Pacific Champion Kathryn Nevatt and Danish National DYN Champion, Anette Rafen Otzen.
“Freediving is one of the fastest growing water sports,” says Jen Clent, Regional Manager, PADI Asia Pacific.
“As such, it is important to highlight safe diving practices. PADI are thrilled to have the chance to do so as a sponsor of the Freediving NZ Pool Nationals and look forward to educating competitors and the general public about the training and opportunities available through the PADI Freediver program.”
