As first reported by Jo Mattock for Sara Campbell — the mighty yoga instructor from South London who famously achieved 96 meters in constant weight at last year’s Vertical Blue., a new British record for free immersion has been set by a relative newcomer to the sport of freediving, Mike Board.

DeeperBlue staff sends Mike our heartiest congratulations.
