Jill was part of the 2006 Canadian National Team that won a bronze in Egypt and the 2008 Team. This is her fifth time returning to the Caymans, after missing 2009 and 2010 is excited to be back in the water with all her PFI friends. She will be having fun and training hard to create some new personal bests.
Paralympian Silver Medalist in the Marathon at the 2008 Athens Paralympics. Introduces to the sport by Jill Yoneda in 2009 and successfully completed the PFI intermediate freediving course in Kona with Kirk and Mandy. Strangely enjoys static breath holds and is looking forward to seeing how deep he can go in free immersion.
In Jan of 1985, at age 6, I set a neighborhood speed record, unbroken to this very day, in “Couch Cushion Staircase Racing”. The spectacle cost me my two front teeth and won me a trip to the emergency room. Miraculously, however, my teeth grew back within weeks; and it was decided then, by my brother and the older neighborhood kids, that I – blessed with the superhuman power of rejuvenation – would be bestowed the honor and duty of the “Go-First Test Pilot” in all other feats of daring and stupidity for the rest of my childhood.
I’m a grown man now. I work in the relatively safe animation industry, promoting childhood obesity and materialism under the guise of educational television. And It has been years since I have done anything really stupid or reckless.
When Kirk approached me with the concept of straddling an electric torpedo and racing it derby-style over a hundred feet underwater on one breath of air, a nostalgic rush surged up through my marrow, and that little tingle I used to get as a kid, right before I’d put my life in grave danger took hold of me, and without even thinking about it, I signed on.
As a proud member of TEAM GOLD FUSION, I am confident that I am going to go down in history as either the 1st to clinch the F3F GOLD MEDAL, or otherwise immortalized by my own stupidity.
