Apnoe am Blue Hole, Sinai

Wendy Timmermans

On the coast of the Sinai desert lays a small village called Dahab, where the famous Blue Hole is located in the Red Sea. An international community of freedivers plunges into the deep, diving on one breath up to depths of 93 meter. Several times a year I co-organise competitions in this amazing place. This picture was taken during the last edition showing athlete Heike Schwerdtner on the final part of the ascend accompanied by safety freedivers and judges and spectators awaiting on the surface.
