Divers try to set a world record - level 2

25-09-2014 07:00

Two hundred divers attempted to set a new Guinness World Record for the largest audience live-streamed underwater.

There was also a photography competition. There was a category for the best five photos, fashion photos, fish of the year, and amateur photos.

The 20-metre dive took place along a shipwreck in the Red Sea. The crew was made up of 26 diving instructors, 32 production members, and 12 professional photographers.

Difficult words: attempt (try), audience (people who watch something), crew (group of people who work closely together).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
