Australian freediver Christina Saenz has been training hard and her efforts paid off last week as she dived to a new Australian Women's record depth of 60m! The avid freediver now holds Titles for the Free Immersion and Constant Weight disciplines.

We love the way Christina thinks about Scuba and Freediving, saying, "with scuba diving you are observing the underwater life, with free-diving it's more that you're interacting with it and you're becoming part of the ocean. So I see one more as an observer, and one more as a participant of the ocean."
"When you're scuba diving you have less interaction with marine life because animals are less likely to approach you with all the equipment on, what I love about free diving is the marine animals are so curious to approach you when you're under water on one breath, particularly other marine mammals."
