Deeperblue.net has just heard that Sara Campbell has reached her goal of 56 metres in the Constant Weight No Fins category, in the Blue Hole in Dahab this afternoon.
Constant Weight is where the freediver descends and ascends under water using only his own muscle strength, without the use of propulsion equipment and without pulling on the rope. Constant weight without fins is the most difficult depth discipline, because of absolutely no propulsing material used to descend. This category needs a perfect coordination between propulsing movments, equalization, technique and buoyancy. (source AIDA)
More details of the dive are awaited, as Sara has provided the information by SMS messaging. Sara has provided a truly amazing week for British sport and paves the road of success of UK freedivers. Sara Campbell started freediving just over 12 months ago, and has proved a natural ability and courage after being ill for 8 months. Just a short time after her recovery she has broken the British and now World Record in 3 disciplines.
A hat-trick for Sara and a chapeau to the United Kingdom in their success. Congratulations Sara, you are an inspiration!
