South Australian Freedivers club member and AFA Secretary Lisa Borg has taken out all-round third place at the 2017 Splash NZ Pool Nationals, held at Challenge stadium in Auckland.
“I put a lot of pressure on myself at Australian Nationals and didn’t do as well as I would have liked, so I wanted this event to be about three solid white card performances. I wasn’t thinking about rankings, just about doing the best I could on the day, and I couldn’t believe it when the final results came up.” The total points (161.1) from her three dives – 3.33 static, 84m dynamic no fins and 153m dynamic, were enough to secure Borg third place behind NZ’s Kathryn Nevatt and Denmark’s Anette Rafen-Ottzen.
“It was a great experience. I’ve learned a lot at every competition, and the freediving community is one of the best aspects of our sport due to the support and friendships that come with it.”
