Sara Campbell, 35, British freediver and triple world record holder, has now become a World Champion in the Constant Weight depth discipline.
At the Individual Freediving World Championships held this week in Sharm el Sheikh on the Red Sea, Sara secured a Gold Medal for Great Britain with an 88 metre dive in Constant Weight.
Sara’s main rival, Russian Nathalia Molchanova, who has held World Records in all six competitive disciplines in the past two years, was aiming to reclaim her World Record title at the competition and again take home the Gold Medal. However, her announcement of 95 metres, an increase of nine metres on her former World Record in the same discipline, proved to be too much for the woman the sport has for a long time considered unbeatable.
Sara shares her world freediving champion status with Briton Sam Still, who won the static apnea discipline in 2005.
