A scuba diving world champion has returned to his home town after breaking his third record. Will Goodman, 33, was back in Borehamwood after remaining under water for two days to break the world record for the longest open saltwater scuba dive. The professional deep-water diver and instructor spent 48 hours, eight minutes and 43 seconds submerged to beat the Guinness world record set in 2009 by Robert Silva from Belize. Mr Goodman broke Silva’s record by six minutes after diving off the holiday island of Gili Trawangan, in Indonesia. The diver kept himself awake underwater by watching films on his iPod. He said that no matter how tired he got, it would have been difficult to nod off in the middle of the sea. However, the laid-back recordbreaker’s movie watching was disturbed when 40 hours into the task he experienced pains in his legs and lower torso. Although the intrepid diver was ready to quit as he neared the end of the attempt, he fought on to see out the final eight hours and set the new record.
