Two young siblings from Bengaluru, India, have achieved a remarkable milestone by becoming the world’s youngest certified scuba divers.

Ovee Malve, only a day past her 10th birthday, established a new global record as the youngest certified scuba diver. Speaking to NewsFirst Prime she said “I am proud to hold this record. It took a lot of hard work and dedication. But exploring marine life makes it worth it.” Her sister, Ruchi, shares in this achievement, making them the youngest certified scuba diver siblings globally. “Frankly, it’s in our genes. We only realised it now. My dad is a sportsperson. It’s a great feeling. I am ready to go for future diving explorations with my sister.” said Ruchi.

Their father, Neeraj Malve, the founder of the Bangalore Mountaineering Club and an experienced scuba diver of 16 years, expressed his pride in their accomplishment.

Ovee’s accomplishment took place at 7:18 am on October 11 in Puducherry, where she received her certification from the Professional Association of Diving Instructors as an open water diver.

Neeraj emphasized that while he understood the challenges of adventure sports, he never imposed such pursuits on his children, ensuring they underwent comprehensive training. Having been enamoured with his scuba diving exploits since they were young, the sisters demonstrated their passion for the water.

The sisters underwent a two-day intensive training program, which included a rigorous 200-meter nonstop swim and the ability to float unassisted for 10 minutes.

Additionally, they delved into five chapters of theoretical knowledge on executing underwater skills in confined waters, passed a written examination, and successfully completed four open-water dives, reaching depths of up to 18 meters, to earn their open water diver certification.

Now at the ages of 10 and 13, the Malve sisters hold the prestigious title of the world’s youngest scuba diver siblings.
