We know very well how Spearboard Open works and he (and others) cheated. Period. No speculation, no magic tricks. He was given the opportunity to disspell the accusations of him and his team cheating and they turned it down, i.e., they cheated.

Regardless of his physical abilities and talent, I could never be jealous of a man who cheats against his fellow brother for a trophy and some prizes.

Edit: You are ignorant to think race has anything to do with this issue. He (and other Team Spetton members) cheated and got caught, period. Regardless if they were black, mexican, chinese, or cuban they disgraced themselves and their abilities and now they have to live with it.

Trust me, if it wasn't for political reasons, there would be a bunch of spearo more than happy to represent Cuba. It would be great to compare the cuban team's standing against the US

So first it was that we are jealous, then it was simply hearsay, and now it is racism.

You are correct. The message I was trying to send by saying that was that he should go represent someone else other than the US. Nothing against Cubans or Cuban Americans by any means.

There's no doubt that he's a exceptional spearfisherman, I never said he wasn't. He tainted his abilities and respect when he cheated in the Spearboard Open this year. Now, he'll have to carry the burden of proof that he isn't cheating. I'm sure he and the others of Team Spetton have justified their actions in the Spearboard Open but the fact remains that they finally got caught cheating and were rightfully disqualified. Because of those events his level of achievement and future competitions will always (and should be) questioned. How you can not understand that is beyond me.

Edit: And because of those actions he's tainted this very thread and all the great information in it.

I'm assuming that you are a Cuban American. If so, I have nothing against Cuban Americans, but I have something against cheaters. It seems to have been proven that he and his team cheated in the SB Open.

Its silly to invite me or anyone else to compete against him or the Spetton team. I don't have the ability. But if a guy who won the Olympic Marathon took a shortcut that cut off a mile from the distance, I would be critical, even though I can't run as fast as he can anyway.

I happen to be of Irish/German descent. If a guy of Irish/German descent is caught cheating, I'm not going to call anyone who is critical of him a racist.

Re: CMAS World Freedive Spearfishing Championships

Wouldn't it be ridiculous easy to prove that he didn't cheat by showing the gps log for that day? And for sure he used a gps to find his spots...

A Human Lie Detector, hmmm, so there are other species on this planet that take lie detector tests? Is there a Big Foot Lie Detector test? How about a Geico Caveman Lie Detector test?

We have plenty of reason to discuss his actions. He and his team were accused of cheating, could not prove otherwise (see above post), and were officially disqualified. Furthermore, they never filed an appeal which only adds to the suspicion of their guilt. Thus his presence on the United States Spearfishing Team is questionable. I know this because it's the truth.

Please stop with your nonsense, it's only dragging Harolf and the others of Team Spetton that were caught cheating through the mud more and embarrassing yourself.

I don't think anyone is saying he cheated at the Worlds. Its a question of whether he should have been allowed to compete for the US after cheating at the SBO. If he had not been permitted to compete at the Worlds, then this thread about the Worlds wouldn't have been sidetracked into an argument about cheaters.

Re: CMAS World Freedive Spearfishing Championships

I am Cuban American and I don't think any of the comments on here have anything to do with race. When I first read the early posts and saw that Harolf was competing, I was surprised the US would have let him compete. Regardless of whether or not he cheated, he was speculated to have cheated and that is enough to taint his image. Some of his actions were sketchy enough to have brought these accusations foreward, aside from race
