Sofia Gomez Uribe sets new CMAS Constant Weight (Bi-Fins) World Record

Gomez Uribe received the accolade at the Univision event in Miami, Florida on 17 December, 2017, after being nominated by her native Colombia in the extreme sports category.

Winners were chosen in 15 categories, and this year, fans got to vote for their favourites. Nominees were chosen based on passion, athletic excellence and dedication to the community.
