Jeju, South Korea, 9 April 2023 - The AIDA Korea National Championship 2023 has concluded, and the results are in. This year’s and last year’s editions of the national championship were held at Jeju Stadium Indoor Pool, the same venue that will host the AIDA World Championship in June 2023.

This year’s AIDA Korea National Championship, which featured Molchanovs as one of its sponsors, was the largest freediving event held in South Korea to date. It included 80 athletes, 22 staff members, 23 safeties, and 24 judges, and spanned over 2 days.
