Newly appointed ZRC ambassador
One approaches the heights, the other the depths. And yet, they both enter into a symbiotic relationship with the same element: water. For Catalin Preda, a permanent member of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series, the aerial ballet has to be excellent every time. In Paris as well as in Mostar in 2022, he took the Cliff Diving win with the highest score ever achieved in competition. From his diving platform situated 27 meters above sea level, his vision of the world differs significantly, as does his notion of time. Each dive requires flawless timing. In a matter of seconds, the figures unfold fluidly one after another. Having started competing at the age of 7, he is now taking high altitude diving to its most demanding level. Throughout the 2023 season, he will have ZRC at his side, with whom he shares the same values – exacting standards and the quest for perfection.
The Romanian diver joins Stephane Tourreau. Born in the foothills of the Alps, he never resists the call of the Big Blue. The Frenchman became in 2016 vice world champion in constant weight mono-fin. He dove down to a depth of -111m during the World Cup Vertical Blue organized in the Bahamas in 2021. Being one with the marine environment, ZRC shares this passion with freedivers. Since 2015, the Geneva-based brand has thus backed all his efforts by equipping him with diving watches capable of withstanding the extreme pressures encountered at great depths. A shot of pure adrenaline for one, a seamless exploration of a fascinating undersea world for the other. With ZRC, life becomes an adventure, with challenge as the only horizon.
