Egyptian makes longest scuba dive record

Walaa Hafez is an Egyptian who recently achieved an openwater scuba diving world record of 51 hours and 24 minutes, thereby breaking the previous 51 hours and 4 minutes record by an American diver.
Abbas was included in the Guinness Book of Records for his achievement. He was a navy officer who retired early due to a serious injury and work as a guide in the Suez Canal. 
Following the increasing acts of maritime piracy in Somalia, Abbas went to Poland for a training course on how to secure ships against piracy.
