From 3 to 13 August will be held in Kazan World Games CMAS, which will include 700 athletes from 40 countries. Team of 82 athletes will represent Russia.

 

 

These games have the status of the world championship in underwater sports. They combine a 6 world championships, which included such subjects as akvatlon, apnea (overcoming distance breath-hold), sports diving, swimming with fins, underwater orienteering, marathon swim.

Competitions will be held in three sports facilities. In the swimming pool "Petrel" competition will take place in speed swimming with flippers and diving sports. The pool is located in the Palace of water sports competitions will be held on apnea (breath-hold diving) and akvatlonu (underwater wrestling). The Center rowing sports athletes will compete in the disciplines of underwater orientation and finning at a distance of 3-5 km. Athletes will reside in the Universiade Village.

"Underwater sport is developing successfully in our country for many years, but such facilities and conditions for the competition, except in Kazan, Russia is nowhere", — stated Anna Arzhanova, president of the World Confederation of Underwater Activities.

She said the Games — a spectacular view. For example, swimming with fins — a very dynamic discipline. Speed swimmers with fins reaches 14.5 km / h For short distances they swim by 40 per cent faster than regular swimmers.

Apnea — an extreme sport. It is usually carried out at sea, but in Kazan, no deep sea, so the competition will be held in the pool. The contest is to find out what the maximum distance an athlete can swim under water and held his breath. To date, a record among the men in the basin is 286 m

First of all, underwater sports are associated with certain risks: the main component of most of the competition is the holding of breath. History is one of the key disciplines — freediving (the middle of the XX century submersible became a separate sport) — full of dramatic moments. The legendary film by Luc Besson's "The Big Blue" is very authentically tells about the first world record in freediving, friends and rivals — Enzo Majorca and Jacques Mayol. Mayol first crossed the 100-mark metrvuyu diving without scuba gear. It happened in 1976. Just over 30 years later, Austrian freediver Herbert Nitsch crossed the mark of 214 meters.

Just the other day in Colombia resulted in the World Games 2013, which in the discipline apnea 26-year-old Colombian Castillo Fernandez set a new world record, breaking the distance of 50 meters in 13.89 seconds. All 84 swimmers who took part in the Games in Colombia, come to Kazan. The organizers are sure the Games in Kazan new world records are inevitable.
