Aarhus Triple Challenge is back – this year combined with the Danish Freediving Championship”
In 2012, the Open Danish Pool Freediving Championship will be held in Aarhus. This year, the event is combined with the Aarhus Triple Challenge competition, hence qualifying the athletes for the 2012 World Championship team. The disciplines are the classic pool disciplines:
STA – static apnea (timed breath holding).
DNF – dynamic apnea without fins (underwater distance swimming without any swimming aids).
DYN – dynamic apnea with fins (underwater distance swimming with mono fin or bi-fins).
For each discipline, the athletes are assigned a point score, based on their results. The athlete with the highest score is announced Danish Champion. However, the competition is gender divided, according to which a male and a female athlete will be awarded the title. All results are ranked according to the AIDA world ranking lists.
The competition will take place at Århus Svømmestadion May 18 - 20, 2012.
As of now, there is a maximum of 40 athletes – no registration is possible once 40 is reached.
Because the event combines Aarhus Triple Challenge and the Danish Championship, for starters registration is open only to Danish athletes. However, provided that the limit has not been reached as per April 18th, registration is open to international athletes.
Registration opens shortly.
