Miguel Lozano is a professional freediver who specialises in depth disciplines. He is Vice World Champion in Constant No Fins and Free Immersion and has attempted huge World Records in FIM in the Bahamas in 2012 to -122m, Bali 2016 to -123m and Roatán 2018 to -125m.
In 2016 he performed a 122m FIM dive at the Caribean Cup Competition in Roatán (Honduras), an achievement that today ranks him as the third deepest person in the world in this discipline, just 3 metres short of the current world record of (-125m).
He also holds Spanish Records in Constant Weight to 105m and a massive 83mts in Constant No Fins.
