Oldest Diver Record Smashed By 99-Year-Old

-

Earlier in September 2019, Bill Lambert became the world’s oldest scuba diver when he dove into the water of Pearl Lake, Illinois, on his 99th birthday.

What is surprising about Lambert’s achievement is the fact he is not an old hand at scuba diving, but in fact only started to learn to dive in November 2018 at the young age of 98 years old.

The record was set with the help of Loves Park Scuba, after Lambert turned up to take several lessons, and kept coming back.

The dive operator eventually helped him get certified in Cozumel, before helping him smash the record last month.

Proof positive that scuba diving is for the young-at-heart!
