MY JOURNEY TO DEPTH

Freediving Blog

Welcome to My Journey to Depth, a blog in which I share my training tips, freediving adventures and competition stories.

Summing up 2018 – How was it?

Unpredictable – that’s for sure. At the beginning of the year I didn’t plan to actively participate in competitions again – I was engaged in various work projects, because as you can guess, you cannot make a porridge out of the competitive medals.

This year, first of all, will be remembered for taking part in the film about Natalia Molchanova called «One Breath», where I participated in all the underwater scenes doubling for the main actress Victoria Isakova. It will be released in 2019, so very soon!

This year, one person has changed everything, to whom I am very grateful. I returned to competitive freediving. Slowly I gain my previous form, setting this year 2 National Records in depth (CMAS) and winning prestigious competitions in Indonesia during Sabang International Freediving Competition 2018.

Just Apnea - National Record CWT 75 - Marianna Gillespie

In 2019, according to my plan, there are 5 competitions in the pool, 5 in depth. I want to improve my old results, and I know that I can.
This year, my approach to deep diving has changed – if earlier I will always use fluid googles, now it’s better without them. As one of my friends noted interestingly, with googles a lot of attention goes to the eyes – and she is right! 😉😘

It’s never too late to try something new. And maybe what you are used to – actually bothers you..? Happy New Year!
