This competition is limited to 40 participants, which this year is represented by athletes from 23 countries.
During 7 years of my competitive career, this is the most organized event. First of all, it is fully supported by the government – today the Minister of Tourism, all mayors and other representatives of the government attended the opening ceremony.
I had the honor to say a few words about the organization at the opening ceremony.
Much attention is paid to safety – we have 3 days of competitions (CWT, FIM, CNF) and if the athlete blacks out underwater – he will be disqualified until the end of the event. Everything becomes much more interesting, because the reward is a cash prize. What else is unusual is free participation. Therefore, online registration was completed in 22 minutes. Unfortunately, there will be no online broadcast this year, but the results in “live time” can be followed on the Facebook Event page or on the website of the competition.
Wish me good luck!
