The 2nd Freediving BlueArch CUP 2019
“The 2nd Freediving BlueArch CUP 2019” official freediving competition will be held.
The competition will have two categories of freediving, including Dynamic Apnea with BiFins (DYNB) and Static Apnea (STA).
In the morning, the competition in DYNB, where the aim is to swim as far as possible underwater using two fins, will be held at Hachijo View Hotel. This category will be introduced for the first time in 2019.
