The Faceoff for a Freediving World Record

Just one day after Ashley Chapman re-broke the Women’s World Record for diving to depth without fins to 65 meters/213 feet, Russian competitive freediver Natalia Molchanova broke it again to 66 meters/217 feet in a competition half a world away in Dahab, Egypt.

Natalia currently holds all the World Records for the self-powered disciplines and has been at the forefront of competitive freediving for many years.

While the news of her record being broken came as a surprise to everyone at Deja Blue, Ashley remains unfazed. Of this record she said, “Ever since I started freediving Natalia’s been the one to beat and nothing’s changed. But I’m feeling really strong and it’s not over yet.”

I personally think Ashley is capable of taking the record back and am sending out all my love to this little American underdog. Go, Ashley, go!
