After the disappearance of Natalia Molchanova in August of 2015, women’s freediving will never look the same again. She was, without a doubt, the Queen of Freediving, with a total of 41 WR's and 23 Gold medals across ALL competitive disciplines, AND the only woman to officially dive below 100m under her own power. It is unlikely that we will ever see another athlete like her, and hard to imagine anyone will replicate her level of success.
Natalia was a fierce competitor. With one of the strongest minds in the sport, she knew how to tune-out external stimuli and get the job done, in even the most trying of circumstances. With her tendency to 'dangle the carrot', leaving her records just within reach for the other top females to strive for and then only seconds, days or weeks later reclaiming that record, it was said that nobody ever truly claimed Natalia's records; they were only ever out on loan.
But now with the Queen gone, a new wave of female competitors is emerging, jostling for poll position and a chance to stake their claim at the top. Without having to look over their shoulder for Natalia, will one of them emerge as the new Queen of women's freediving?
