As time passes, our sport continues to lose its pioneers: those who paved the way through their innovations, improvements and devotion to diving. Their contributions are many including environmental awareness, safety and creative means of taking the sport to its highest level. As they leave us, Dive News Network will cite their rites of passage with tributes in print and on our website. But this won’t be limited to just the pioneers. Other devotees who “cross the bar”’ and have contributed significantly to the sport will be honored as well. In this case it’s news that we are sad to report, but the diving community should be informed about these great people and their contributions.
