Scuba Diving | Get to Know Your Neighborhood Shark in USA

(Sportalsub.net / Aquaviews) - Leer en Español Let’s talk about the elephant in the room. Or, more to the point, the shark in the water. Summertime, swimming, Shark Week — fins are the hot topic of conversation right now. Seven people have been bitten off the shores of North Carolina in the last few weeks. An eighth bite has been reported over the holiday weekend but is, at this time, unconfirmed. Now scientists and shark researchers are working to determine why this spike has occurred. Could it be environmental? The short answer: possibly. An increase in coastal water temperatures leads to more food near the shore, which brings the sharks closer to land. Factor in turtle nesting season with an abundance of beachgoers and you have what George Burgess of the International Shark At...

Finswimming. Exhibition Sport in the 1st European Games Baku 2015 + Videos

(Sportalsub.net / CMAS / Baku 2015 / Finswimmer.com / All Finswimming) - Leer en español European Games Finswimming sumary, results and videos - All Finswimming It's been very short, but still a great event. Finswimming was in démo at the European Games 2015. Only 4 races were scheduled but it was a great show. The first race was the 100 IM Women. The Russian Vera Iliyushina was the strongest and won the race in 36"52. This is better than the European record (36"86 by Camille Heitz) but all the athletes used non homologated polyurethane finsuits (we wonder a little bit why). Also it was surprising to see that Iliyushina has not been disqualified as it was obvious she hit the wall with her bottle. Being her, Camille Heitz from France got the second place in 37"39 and Sophia Kte...
