Nataliia Zharkova

@zharkova_freediver

Nataliia Zharkova has set six freediving World Records, has held the World Champion title on four occasions, and the European Champion title twice. She was also the second woman after Natalia Molchanova to ever dive the Arch, located at the Blue Hole in Dahab, Egypt. She is a well-rounded athlete who competes in all four depth disciplines - something she takes a lot of pride in. At the beginning of her career, her focus was mainly on championships and setting records. Now, Nataliia enjoys all aspects of the sport, especially teaching. She continues to dive competitively, and also teaches as an Instructor Trainer and a coach to “whoever dares to reach the stars...or in this case, the bottom of the sea.”
