Lidija discovered freediving soon after she finished her first scuba diving course. She discovered the beauty of the underwater world in just one breath and fell in love with freediving.
Since 2007 she has been a member of the Croatian national team and ever since, she has been winning medals in World and European Championships.
During her career, she has set 4 world records, won World and European gold in dynamic with fins and been 4-time World Vice Champion and 2-time Euopean Vice Champion in various disciplines.
She became a freediving instructor in 2013 in order to be able to pass on her knowledge and passion to others.
Nowdays, she combines competitions, teaching and an office job as an architect.
