Sayuri Kinoshita, freediving world champion, has died

Sayuri Kinoshita, the world champion and world record holder in freediving, died on Monday, July 15, as a result of injuries sustained in a non-diving accident. The 30-year-old Japanese woman was one of the leading athletes in freediving, with titles including World Champion.

From the information released, we know that Sayuri forgot the key to her flat. She tried to enter through the balcony on the 4th floor, unfortunately she slipped and fell from a height of 10 metres. She was found in a car park by neighbours who called the emergency services. The unconscious woman was taken to hospital where she died 4 days later.

Sayuri Kinoshita was a world record holder and world champion in the Free Immersion competition, with her best results of 94m and 97m (each a new world record) at the highly prestigious Vertical Blue competition, in the Bahamas, in 2017. This year Sayuri set another record, this time in the CWT BF competition with 82m, at the Xibalba competition in Mexico in April.

Sayuri’s family published a Facebook post saying that despite her serious injuries, her body was so strong that she fought for four more days before her heart finally gave out. Sayuri Kinoshita died on Japan’s National Ocean Day. She was surrounded by family and friends in her final moments.
