Hood River man, former record holder, continues pursuit of exotic sport
Wes Lapp got hooked on freediving about 10 years ago, when he and his wife, Nancy Napp, took a six-week trip to Micronesia with the objective of conceiving their first child. The trip was a success; somewhere between Guam and Pohnpei their daughter, Zan, was in utero, and the two returned home to Hood River to start their new family.
