The PFI Deja Blue 7 competition in the Cayman Islands continues with numerous Personal Bests and a new National Record for the Cayman Islands with Jeremy Walton completing an 82m/269ft Dynamic Apnea swim in the pool for his second national record in the pool during the competition.

The competition has alternated between pool disciplines and depth disciplines with the points accrued from all disciplines on offer.

The Gilmore family – in the form of Tom Gilmore and his daughter Meghan Gilmore – have dominated the leaderboard to date and are currently top of the rankings for both men and women with two days of competition still left to go.

Safety is almost paramount with the PFI safety team, led by President and Founder Kirk Krack, using advanced “technical freediving” techniques to ensure both athletes and supporting crew are as safe as 13235409_10154161100933948_3869587023677454006_o-696x464possible. Krack explains the techniques in the video below.

The full athlete standings after day 5 can be seen below. Saturday will see athletes compete in both pool and depth disciplines and the last day Sunday will be depth only.
