About 400 divers from Egypt and other countries gathered the other day in Hurghada to try their luck, which in this case means a new diving record in the famous Guinness Book. Globally, the campaign, spearheaded by Egyptian diver Ahmed Gabr, aims to raise public awareness of the plight of the Red Sea, piled high with rubbish that interferes with coral reef life.
The name of Ahmed Gabr has already been mentioned twice in the Guinness Book of Records: the first time he received an award for diving to the greatest depth, the second for diving at the maximum possible (332.35 m) depth in sea water.
Gabra’s current plans are to compete for the world record in diving, which so far belongs to Abu Dhabi. Here, we recall, a competition with the participation of 300 divers took place.
The organizer of the current swim was the Ministry of Tourism and the Administration of the Red Sea region of Egypt. Among the divers is the current Minister of Tourism Rami Khaled
