About my freediving.

Cape Town – South Africa’s pool freediving record books have been rewritten, thanks to Amber Fillary. Fillary set three new national records at the recent national championships in Port Elizabeth. I am passionate about the sea, people and travelling through the challenges of life and helping people and freediving. I am an artist and come join my story.

THERE IS A LOT MORE ABOUT ME, SCROLL DOWN
“I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself.
For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our
circumstance but by our disposition.”Martha Washington

Help me break the World Record!

My name is Amber and I currently hold three South African freediving records. My goal this year is to break the Guinness World Record for under-the-ice dynamic breath-hold (apnea) swim. The record is currently held by Johanna Nordblad and I will be swimming against her in a challenge scheduled for 21 March 2019 in Finland. I will be representing South Africa and raising awareness of how to reach your dreams despite the battle of depression and addiction.

My journey to recovery has not been easy, but having the world record as a goal is forcing me to face a lot of fears and tap into my inner strength to push my mind and body to the limit

I will need 11 000 pounds for logistics, transport and training to achieve this goal. All donations will directly help me fund my expenses. By contributing, you will help me to become a world record holder for my country, South Africa, and help show the rest of the world that mental illness can be overcome.

My latest Freediving

Cape Town – South Africa’s pool freediving record books have been rewritten, thanks to Amber Fillary.

Fillary set three new national records at the recent national championships in Port Elizabeth.

The records to fall were in the following categories:

Static – lying with your head in the water while holding your breath.

Provincial champion 2015

Dynamic without Fins – involves swimming as far as possible underwater using an adapted breaststroke technique. No fins or other artificial propulsion devices are allowed. This discipline is regarded as the most athletic of the pool freediving disciplines.

Dynamic with Fins – involves covering lengths using a mono fin. It’s the distance covered that is measured, not the speed. In general, the slower one goes, the more relaxed one is, which is better as your body uses less oxygen.

In the Static category, Fillary broke the record of five and a half minutes, setting a new time of six minutes.
