Karol Meyer - queen of the southern oceans

After judging Trubridge's world record in CNF in 2007 Karol is returning to Dean's Blue Hole as a competitor to lay a claim for Brazil as one of the great freediving nations. Karoline was trained by Pipin Ferreras in the 90's, but has left him, and his level of performance behind and is one of the top female freedivers in the world.
