Sara Campbell puts British Freediving on the map for good.
19th October 2007
News has reached Deeperblue this morning from the British Freediving Association, that UK freediver Sara Campbell has just broken the world record for Free Immersion freediving. This involves pulling one’s self down a submerged rope on one breath of air, to the deepest depth possible. In Sara’s case this was 81 metres! This news is incredible, when considering that Sara is a relative newcomer to freediving and has only been performing competitively for less than a year. During that time she has set several national UK records, but to set a world record has amazed everyone at the BFA, and throughout the freediving community. The previous world record holder for this discipline was Natalia Molchanova of Russia, who’s depth had been 80 metres.
