World Record Dive
Ahmed Gabr sets a new world record for the deepest scuba dive at 332.35 metres
Egypt's Ahmed Gabr has done it! With a dive to 332.35m, Ahmed set the new offical Guinness World Record for the deepest scuba dive, beating the previous record held by Nuno Gomes by 14.1m.
Ahmed started his descend at 10:30 am (EEST) yesterday but made the decision during the dive not to dive all the way down to 350m as originally planned. He reached the new record depth of 332.35m after only about 12 minutes before starting his 819-minute long way up to the surface. At 12.12am local time, Ahmed surfaced and was welcomed by his team, fans and an offcial Guinnes World Record judge who verified the new record.
