Sara Campbell is a British freediver.

She is the former world record holder in free immersion (FIM) (diving to a depth of 81m),[1] constant weight (CWT) (96m) and constant without fins (56m). Sara Campbell is the freediving face of The Underwater Channel.

Campbell was born in Banbury, Oxfordshire to Barbara and Rob Campbell, and studied German and Italian at Bristol University.[2] Campbell was working in public relations in London,[2] and combining this with part-time aerobics instructing, when she decided to move to Dahab in 2005 and set up a yoga holiday business.[2]

Campbell stumbled upon freediving when a one of her yoga students noticed she was very good at holding her breath.[2]

On 2 April 2009, Sara Campbell set a new women's freediving world record in the Bahamas[3] by diving to 96m in constant weight.[2][4]
