2003 CAFA Annual General Meeting

September 30, 2003

Campaign Statement and Resume for Tom Lightfoot

I have been involved in the administration, instruction and promotion of underwater sports for over thirteen years. I have never been as engaged in those things as I have been in the past two years with freediving and CAFA. I believe that we are now in the ‘glory days’ of Canadian Freediving, the time of growth, innovation and experimentation.

If elected, my objectives in the next year will be to not only make sure that the upcoming World Championships are a success, but also to make sure that what we do forms a foundation that will endure beyond the time of the extraordinary people that currently run CAFA.

  • Vice-President of CAFA from January 2001 to present
