Meet Ken Wooley 66 and his father Ray Wooley 94, they have more than 100 years of diving experience between them and Ray recently entered the Guinness Book of Records for being the oldest active male diver in the world.
Ray started diving in 1960, he still carries all his equipment unaided, regularly diving off the coast of Cyprus, where he lives.
His son Ken said:
“Perhaps scuba diving is the key to longevity. Along with pool training and in-water exercising where the body is effectively weightless, scuba diving is an effective way of maintaining fitness. My father is in the water two or three times a day doing aqua aerobics and attributes his age to keeping active an alert.”
This makes us belive that perhaps there's hope for all of us scuba divers to enjoy a long and healthy life.
