OCTOPUS 50 m in 50 m pool

Total distance is 100 meters. Pairs of 2 men, 2 ladies and mixed couples take part in OBSTACLE COURSE 100 m in 50 m pool. One team uses 3 lines of the pool. Athletes must be ready on pool curbstones wearing scuba. Each diver of the team uses own curbstone. After start they enter to the water by giant step, descend and start swimming underwater using scuba. First they enter to tunnels, each one is 2 m length. Tunnels consist of rigid rings 90 cm in diameter. Each athlete passes own tunnel. An athlete can touch the rings inside tunnel, but mustn’t move the construction along the bottom. If the movement of the tunnel is registered by judge, the team is disqualified. Divers passes through their tunnels and continue underwater swimming. Before the mark of 15 m they should start air sharing. One diver (donor) must supply another one (acceptor) with alternate air source (octopus). Acceptor must start breathing from octopus and keep a stable physical contact with donor, avoiding octopus loss. If athletes start air sharing later than 15 m the penalty is 10 seconds. Maximum length of octopus hose is 110 cm. Divers continue swimming while air sharing until they reach the mark of 42 m (8 m from the opposite border). They stop air sharing and continue to swim autonomously. 5 m before an opposite wall there are 2 baskets at the bottom. Divers should take off their masks and put them into the baskets. Than they must no-mask swim, touch the wall, reverse, turn back to the baskets, find the masks, replace them, clean and continue the distance. At the third pool line there is one long 5 m tunnel. Divers should remove their scubas and pass this tunnel one by one wearing scuba in no-mount position. After tunnel divers should replace scubas. After the tunnel there is a big 1.5 kg object at the pool bottom. Usually it is a fitness ball filled with water for negative buoyancy. Divers should lift an object to the surface before they reach the mark of 25 m (middle of the pool). If they do it later the penalty is 10 seconds. They should swim backward at the surface while towing an object. The finish is registered when both divers touch the wall. The team must finish the distance as a team in a contact with an object and each other.
