Submania sets high standards in its pool competitions. This edition of the Croatian Open Cup included eight safety divers, two on-site doctors, and two oxygen tanks (one for each pool lane). They also notified the local police and ambulance of the competition schedule. Additionally, they provided lunch for athletes after their performances and hosted a special reception at the end of the competition, which included food and drinks for athletes, staff, judges, and friends.

The main organizer of the event, Mihael Salopek, who also set his own static personal best in the competition, mentioned that “the most beautiful thing was the smiles on the faces of the competitors, of which there were many, especially their satisfaction with the organization of the competition. And of course, the most enjoyable is the socializing after the competition.”

Submania plans on hosting a spearfishing competition later in 2024 on the island of Pašman. Additionally, they aim to expand their freediving competitions in 2025, with a focus on attracting more international participants from neighboring countries such as Hungary, Italy, and Serbia. In the meantime, Submania will organize several trips and freediving courses in the coming summer months.
