The Polish Pool Championships in Debica, held from 30.04 to 2.05, brought some spectacular results and four new World Records.
In the world of freediving the Polish Pool Championships in Debica was a highly anticipated event. The competition was one of the last opportunities to present oneself before the World Championships in Belgrade in June. It should not surprise anyone that the competitors were extremely concentrated.
The result? As expected by the fans! The leading Polish freedivers set four new World Records and the individual results confirmed their great strength and excellent preparation. The form from Bluego MiniComp held on 27 March was confirmed by all three record-holders: Magdalena Solich-Talanda, Julia Kozerska and Mateusz Malina.
Julia Kozerska with a distance of 202m set a new world record in the Dynamic Apnea Without FinsJulia Kozerska with a distance of 202m set a new world record in the Dynamic Apnea Without Fins – DNF. In an emotional post on social media she described her start as “one of the most important performances in her career”. All because of her mother presence, who was able to see with her own eyes the setting of the new record. We hope that the most important start is still ahead of Julia and together with her mum they will be able to enjoy further successes.
Mateusz Malina is now probably in the best shape of his life and you can see it in his results. At the Championships in Debica the Pole reached a distance of 250 m in three competitions (DYN, DNF, DBF). However it was the result in the DNF competition that made the biggest impression as after 6 years he improved his own World Record (244m). Although Matthew admitted that not everything in the preparation went his way, he believes that he can give more in the future. Let’s hope he had the nearest future and the World Championships in Belgrade in mind.
During the Polish Pool Championships in Dębica Magdalena Solich-Talanda became a double World Record holder. She reached 207m in DNF competition and 243m in DYNB. Her achievement you can read in our previous news.
Apart from great results, four of which were new World Records, the competition in Debica showed that freediving in Poland is getting better and better. Not only because of the competitors who did their best, but also because of the great organisation. The preparation of the pool and the professionalism of the organisers were aspects that many people paid attention to.
