8 – 9 October 2016

ID: Apnea Competition 2016


For two consecutive years, we have invited freedivers all around the world to Indonesia to hold their breath and do their very best in a competitive environment. In 2015, we have fourteen athletes representing three nationalities. Best performances were achieved and seven national records were made during the event. We are happy to announce that this year, we’ll organise another one!

The competition will last for 2 days (8 – 9 October 2016) with a briefing day on 7 October 2016 (one day before). The competition consists of 3 disciplines: dynamic no fins (DNF), static apnea (STA), and dynamic with fins (DYN). The total combined scores determine the winner of the competition.


The competition will be held in GOR Pertamina Simprug Swimming Pool.

Jalan Sinabung 2
Grogol Selatan, Kebayoran Lama
Jakarta Selatan 12220 – Indonesia

The pool is an Olympic Pool (50m x 25m) with depth 1.2m sloping to 3.5m. Both DYN and DNF will be using 50m length and all Official Tops (OTs) will be done from the 1.2 meter side. It is an outdoor pool and the temperature is about 28-30°C (depending on the weather).

There will be 2 competition lanes that runs parallel on each side of the pool.

Detail location of the venue can be found here.

Competition Structure

Each athletes will have to perform 3 pool disciplines: Static Apnea, Dynamic with Fins, Dynamic without Fins. Each performance will be measured and converted into points according to AIDA Competition Regulations. Athletes with the highest total points will be the winner.

Since there’s only 2 competition days, athletes will perform 1 discipline (DNF/DYN) on the first day of competition and 2 discipline on the second day (STA & DNF/DYN). Because the competition will be using 50m length for both Dynamic with Fins and Dynamic without Fins, we allow the athletes to choose which dynamic discipline (DNF/DYN) that he/she wants to do on the first day and second day (they can do the same discipline for both day but the result will not be considered double; highest result will be used).

However, Announce Performance will be collected during briefing day, and the submission cannot be altered afterwards to keep the fairness of the competition.

Black Out Regulation

As it was mentioned in the AIDA Regulation, any athletes who black out (BO) during his/her performance have to stop diving for the rest of the day. Which means, athletes that black out during his/her first/morning performance cannot participate in the afternoon discipline.
