Croatia's Kardašević Wins Bronze at Free Diving World Championship in Turkey

ZAGREB, 11 Oct 2021 - Croatian Mirela Kardašević clinched a bronze medal at the Free Diving World Championship in Kaş, Turkey, setting a new Croatian record.

In the free diving discipline CNF (constant weight without fins) with a 63-meter dive, she set the national record and won medals in both pool and depth world championships.

The CMAS 5th Free Diving World Championship Outdoor took place in Turkey from 30 September to 10 October.

"Bronze at a depth world championship is a great success for me since I have very little time for preparation for depth. I am one of the few divers competing both in the pool and outdoor, so the success I have achieved makes me very happy."

At the Free Diving World Championship that took place in Belgrade in June, Mirela Kardašević won three medals -- one gold and two silvers. This is her eighth medal from Free Diving World Championships (two golds, three silvers, and three bronzes), and she has two bronze medals from European championships. Mirela Kardašević also holds six world records.
