AKVATLON

Underwater wrestling, commonly known as Aquatlon, is a water sport in which two masked and fins compete under water in an attempt to peel off each other’s ankle.

HISTORY OF CREATION
Aquatlon received its development in the 80s of the last century. Its founder is Igor Ostrovsky, a Russian coach in underwater sports. Underwater wrestling was first presented at the Moscow Technological University in April 1982. This event was a huge success, therefore, back in 1993, international competitions were held in the capital.

This sport was conceived in 2005 by freediver Christian Redl and his training partner Jaromir Fukal. A few years later, 2007, the first world championship was held in the Austrian city of Weissensee, where the Finnish team won. Other gaming countries were the Czech Republic, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland and Slovenia. The second world championship in underwater hockey was held in February 2013 in Weissensee (Austria), where Austria won the championship.

Despite the fact that people from northern Europe are the best sportsmen in winter sports, athletes from Austria were able to surpass everyone. The temperature of the “water” during the game reaches the mark of 5 degrees, which is why it is not surprising that the participants in the competitions are mainly residents of countries with harsh climates.
