Sara Campbell is a British freediver.

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 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]

As of 2018, Sara lives in Dahab, Egypt, a place noteworthy for freediving. She teaches freediving and Kundalini yoga in the South Sinai town.
