World record holder Ahmed Gabr will be at Al-Ahram headquarters on Sunday from 6-8pm for a Q&A session to talk about his experience breaking the record for deepest dive.

Gabr completed his record-breaking dive on 19 September to become the new title-holder for deepest salt water scuba dive, reaching 332.35 metres.

Gabr's team, who prepared him for the dive over the course of two years, will also be present at the event to answer questions.

Readers can send in questions for Gabr and his team via Twitter, using the hashtag #askgabr. 

The Q&A will be published later by Ahram Online and Al-Ahram Arabic.

The former Egyptian army officer planned his dive with his team at the H2O Divers diving center in Dahab. Gabr spent 14 hours underwater  on 19 September, smashing the previous record by South African diver Nuno Gomes who reached the depth of 318.25 metres in 2005.
