First day of the 2022 CMAS Freediving Outdoor World Championship98 athletes from 39 countries, competed in the discipline of Constant Weight (CWT), a freediving discipline which requires the freedivers to ascend and descend along the dive-line without pulling or grabbing the line. Grabbing and pulling the line is allowed only at the 3 meters free zone above the bottom plate or else the athlete will be disqualified. The weights of the athletes must remain the same during the dive. In CWT freedivers use mono-fins or bifins to dive. The freefall is starting at a depth of around 25 to 35 meters. On the ascent however, the freediver must overcome this negative buoyancy and propel himself all the way back to the surface in one breath.

CWT is the most common competition discipline among freedivers and needs apneistic abilities and excellent finning technique.

The previous days’ weather conditions caused a one-hour delay to the start of the competition. Except for some cases of athlete blackouts, that were treated properly, the competition ran smoothly and succesfully. Here are the results of day 1, congratulations to the new world champions and medal winners.

🥈 Davide Carrera   121 mts ITA 🇮🇹
🥉 Antonio Mogavero  113 mts ITA 🇮🇹
