Team Lead By Indian Break Guinness World Record At Koh Tao

Published by:

With Thailand successfully cultivating tourism appeal for the country, it has become one of the world’s tourism hotspots, with tens of thousands of people from across the globe travelling to experience the nightlife of Bangkok or take in the sun-soaked views of the country’s many beaches from a high-class resort. People are now frequenting Koh Tao villas, and other tourist destinations in the country for their vacation needs.

Last February, however, a different kind of visitor flocked to the beaches of Koh Tao.

Mechanical Engineering student Suneet Jain, a non-residential Indian (NRI), was one of the many people who joined India’s Chrysalis Entrepreneur Forum for a daring feat: breaking the current Guinness World Record for the longest human chain underwater. With 182 participant scuba divers, the feat was attempted off the shores of Thailand, near the sun-soaked Koh Tao villas. The attempt was a success, ousting the former record, set by 173 Italian divers.

The endeavour was planned with the assistance of Absolute Scuba from India, and took place in the waters near the Coral Grand Resort, at Koh Tao’s Sairee Beach. The human chain formed by the numerous divers managed to reach a length of 140 metres.

The team was varied in composition, with 30-non swimmers with some first time scuba divers participating in the endeavour. The team members ranged from as young as 8 years old, to as old as 58. This group was responsible for laying the groundwork for the feat, including the recruitment and subsequent training of the 200 participants, finding the appropriate locate for the attempt, and then, handling the issues of organising a scuba diving event of such size in a foreign country. The team’s first attempt was a bust, due to their inexperience with handling saltwater, which necessitated the replacement of several participant divers and the creation of a new dive plan.  The group and their attempt was aimed to inspire people all over the world, by making a statement.

Suneet, was one of the participants and leaders in this undertaking, and is already planning out the next Guinness World Record attempt to see which is the most feasible.
