On August 17th, the AIDA Depth World Championship begins on the island of Roatán, Honduras. It is the 29th world championship event AIDA has arranged in its 30 years of existence if we count depth, pool, and team competitions.
In most kinds of sports (except football and motorsports), world championship events are the second biggest worldwide competition after the Olympic Games. Freediving isn't an Olympic sport, so world championships are the highest level of competition for freedivers.
Today we are starting the countdown for the biggest freediving marathon of 2022 starting August 1st, which will include two competitions: Vertical Blue 2022 and the 29th AIDA World Championship. The Molchanovs team will cover both events. On our social media (IG and FB), our marketing manager Amanda Tran will provide a brief recap of the day’s events, interesting facts about athletes, and quizzes for freediving history lovers in IG and FB Stories. Kristina Zvaritch and I, Asya Kleshchevnikova, will be announcing the most anticipated performances and detailed analyses of each competition day’s events on Facebook posts and molchanovs.com.
