One great breath takes Falls to depths in Serbian dive

GLADSTONE freediver Patrick Falls is now 33rd in the world for dynamic freediving with fins, after posting a 155m effort in Serbia.

The discipline is an in-pool challenge where divers travel as far as they can on a single breath, using fins to help the propulsion.

Competing at the World Championships, Falls is two thirds of the way through competition.

At the championships he had previously been able to record a 104m dynamic swim without fins.

It leaves the Gladstone athletes with only the static event yet to complete, which he has to hold his breath for as long as possible while face down in the water.
