Freediver Sara Campbell Breaks World Record Wearing Bremont Ambassador

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Sara Campbell, the 37 year old World Champion freediver, who stunned the world in 2007 after taking three World Records, in under 48 hours, and just nine months after taking up the sport, has finally reclaimed her position as the world’s best female freediver, with an astounding breath-hold dive to 96m (316 feet) in 3 minutes and 36 seconds on Thursday 2nd April.

After a stunning year in 2007, marking Sara’s three World Records and seeing her become World Champion, she had to take an enforced break in
training and record-breaking due to her mother’s death in 2008.

However impressive Sara’s achievement this week, her plan in attending this year’s Vertical Blue competition held at Dean’s Blue Hole on Bahamas’ Long Island was to become the first woman to 100m in Constant Weight. Sara said: “I’m delighted to have reclaimed my record, but 100m has always been my goal. Yesterday wasn’t about the number behind the dive, it was about proving to myself, and the world, that I have what it takes to be the best, to come back from real adversity and show that
anything is possible if you can just set your mind to it.”

Bremont set up a testing program which started the extensive development cycle for this new range of marine watches, also testing the current range of aviation watches which are all designed to go down
to 100m. A controlled test program enables Bremont to not only examine the water resistance but also the dial and strap designs.

Giles English- Bremont Co-Founder said, “Sara is one of Britain’s great sports personalities and for Bremont she epitomizes adventure with understated achievement. Bremont however is also looking beyond the association benefits, rarely does a watch get tested out of a laboratory down to these depths but Sara does it three times a week.”
