William Lambert, a 98-year-old resident of Rockford, Illinois, has become an example that it’s never too late (or too early) to learn and dive! He and 4-year-old Jaxson Bosselman attended an event where the world’s oldest and youngest divers were underwater at the same time.

You just have to do it because it’s cool and it’s good for you.” – said Lambert[/blockquote].

After obtaining his qualifications and certificate, the elderly diver has no intention of slowing down. He is already planning his next dives and does not mind that he will be 99 years old on 5th September.
