The untimely death of the freediving Queen, Natalia Molchanova, like the falling of a redwood giant, has left a gapping hole in the freediving canopy. Her reign at the top lasted nearly 12 years and included 43 World records. In all likelihood, she was, and always will be, the greatest freediver of our time.
But her absence has created an opportunity for a new generation of female freedivers to assert themselves at the top of the game. Like young saplings they can reach for the sun and drag our sport up, from out of the shadow, which has been cast by the loss of our mighty Queen, and into the light and times of a new era.
In Part One we looked at five worthy contenders who will battle it out over the coming year, racing to fill the void that has been created and for the crown of 'Worlds deepest Woman'.
In this edition I will profile five more. So once again, in no particular order....
With such a long list of talent(and beauty!) the future looks bright for competitive freediving. These young ladies already deserve commendation for their successes and achievements. It's going to take a special sort of person to fill Natalia's shoes, someone with more than just a high work ethic, perseverance and skill level. They are going to need to possess the SELF BELIEF that they are capable of becoming the greatest. For those that accept and believe that Natalia's mountain of accomplishments is too steep to climb, have already conceded defeat. And, perhaps its going to take more than just athletic prowess. For a true Queen not only rules her subjects, she also gives back.
Our sport needs these woman to become the face of competitive freediving, to help with its growth and image, and to inspire the next generation of freedivers.
So, with all that has been said, I hope that we do see a new Queen emerge, one who can rule with all of the strengths and qualities that Natalia did so before her.
