Two-time Guinness World Record holder Ahmed Gabr now aims to set up the biggest underwater clean-up dive in Hurghada. The Egyptian athlete aims to get over 400 divers in the water over 24 hours to remove waste in the Red Sea Clean, breaking the record for the World’s Biggest Underwater Clean-Up Dive.
The event, to be held from between June 4-6, is organized through a crowdfunding campaign launched through GoGetFunding.com to help make the record happen. The organizers have already entered their attempt at Guinness, which will oversee the record-breaking shot.
Five per cent of the total amount raised will be donated to a nature conservation group, in order to carry on the cleaning of the the Red Sea. Aspiring participants, who can sign up through Ahmed Gabr’s website, will receive an “Officially Amazing Certificate” on completion of the challenge.
