Cristina Francone sets two new world records – film

Last weekend, on 1-2 May, Italian freediver Cristina Francone set two new world records. The athlete flashed her form during the Sardinia Cup held in Cagliari.

During the competition held in Sardinia, the Apennine freediver gave no chance to her rivals, winning both the mono and fin competition. The freediving competition was organised by the Italian Federation of Sport Fishing and Underwater Activities (FIPSAS) and was held under the rules of the World Confederation of Underwater Activities (CMAS).

On Saturday, 1 May, Cristina Francone put in an impressive performance in the monoplane competition. In her attempt, she reached a distance of 261.40 metres in a time of 2 minutes 58 seconds. This result allowed her to beat the previous world record, which belonged to another Italian woman Alessia Zecchiniwho set it in June 2019.

Sunday also belonged to Cristina. She set her second world record in freediving while competing in the dynamic swimming in fins competition. She achieved 231.85 metres in 3 minutes and 2 seconds. This time she improved the result of the Croatian Mirela Kardašević, who achieved a distance of 230.05 metres at the end of March 2021.

The competition in both cases took place in an Olympic-size pool and everything was supervised by CMAS international judge Stefano Floris.

It is also worth noting that Cristina Francone has only been freediving for two years. Before that she was training swimming. She was also not helped by the current situation in the world and cancellations of subsequent competitions. However, everything seems to be getting back to normal and the Italian is looking forward to the next competitions with optimism.
