NEW RECORD FROM A LEADING FIGURE

Mr Kim Jaatinen, a long term Pathos athlete from Finland and a leading figure is in the scene of Nordic spearfishing!

He made a new record catch during the traditional Hanko Cup competition in Finland.

Mr Kim managed to catch 33 fish of seven species, the total weight of which was 27 kg!

The new record point for one-day Finnish spearfishing competitions now reads 43.360 points! During the 6-hour competition, Mr Kim visited many spots discovered, during scouting and managed to win the high-level competition. The sunny weather and good sea conditions made for a magnificent competition with the top three athletes all having more than 30.000 points.

Congratulations Mr Kim and keep going!
