Divers try to set a world record - level 3

Divers try to set a world record - level 3

25-09-2014 07:00

A group of divers has attempted to set a new Guinness World Record for the largest audience live-streamed underwater.

More than 200 divers took part in the in the Eilat Red Sea photography competition over the weekend to try and break the world record.

Tens of thousands of people across the world watched a live broadcast of the divers via YouTube as they made a 20-metre dive along a shipwreck, off the coast of southern Israel.

Parts of the competition also included categories such as best five photos, fashion photos, fish of the year and amateur photography.

The crew, which made up of 26 diving instructors, 32 production members and 12 professional photographers, might be left holding their breath though, as they're still waiting to find out if the number of live stream views was enough to break the world record.

Difficult words: audience live-streamed underwater (the audience watches these underwater divers live on the internet), competition (when people try to be the best at something), amateur (someone who does something because he enjoys it), production (the process to make something happen), to be left holding their breath (they are waiting anxiously).
