Ahmed Gabr

The London Dive Chamber has today announced that Ahmed Gabr is to speak at the 19th London Dive Chamber lecture.

Gabr talked about the logistics, planning and dive aspect of his record breaking scuba dive to 332.35 mt / 1091 ft at EUROTEK.2014. If you missed this presentation at the European advanced and technical diving conference, you can hear Ahmed speak on Tuesday 6th March 2018 at the Royal Geographical Society in London.

I interviewed Ahmed Gabr in 2014 about his record breaking dive preparation. He told me “I took two years to evaluate whether I could do the dive. I then undertook a four year hardcore training programme to improve my metal and physical fitness – yoga, cardiovascular, cycling, running, swimming – whilst following a Pescatarian diet. (A plant-based diet with the inclusion of fish). I wanted to become a Vegan, but that is pretty challenging. I actually delayed the dive five times until the 18 September to ensure that everything was as perfect as it could be.

The second lecture of the night will be delivered by Didier Noirot. This Emmy Award winning underwater videographer was Jacques Cousteau’s right hand man for many years.

Entrance is free to these lectures so please stop by a cashpoint on your way to the RGS and load up your purses and wallets with cash. This event is the Trust’s biggest fundraiser, so please dig deep and give generously to the folks rattling the Scuba Trust buckets on the night.
