World record time this weekend

Apparently this weekend was all about braking world records in our little world scuba community. In Dahab the Egyptian diver Ahmet Gabr set the new world record for deepest dive by reaching the unfathomable depth of 332,35 meters or 1090 feet. The other world record was reclaimed by Allen 'The Grouper' Sherrod in Lauderdale-by-the-sea. He managed to stay underwater for a mere 51 hours 4 minutes and 28 seconds. He even saw the change to renew his vows with his wife during this time.

I'm no world record scuba diver and don't aspire to be one. Still it's an amazing feet both men have done. For me just enjoying the quiet time below the waves and enjoying the marine life is all that's needed to get me to scuba diving.
