26 September 2015, Cagliari, Sardinia.
The Team World Championships of 2015 proved to be a wonderfully organized and exciting competition in a beautiful setting.
The Croatian men, led by World Record holder Goran Colak, came prepared to defend their title from 2013 but the Russian men were on a mission to capture the gold! Natalia Molchanova was hoping to add another gold medal to her long- list of triumphs and did so in brilliant fashion with a 237 meter new World Record in dynamic apnea which gave the Russian women a decided victory over Japan.
There were many impressive performances including Goran’s very easy 9:13 static but that was not enough to carry the team to a medal. Team competition relies completely on points, and clean performances by each member of the team delivers the most points overall. A few unexpected red cards throughout the competition kept the points close and the outcome unpredictable. In the end , The Russians prevailed with the most white cards and some big performances. The Czechs were very strong and won two medals, as well.
