Omar Samra and Omar Nour are up for a new adventure. This time, no mountains involved. The O2 team will be CROSSING THE ATLANTIC OCEAN ROWING, yes, that’s right. How cool is this? They are getting themselves ready for a big event in December, where they will be crossing the Atlantic Ocean unsupported for 5000Km enduring 50-foot waves, crazy storms, sleep deprivation and extreme isolation.

That’s why they will be rowing for two days, from 7 pm, Friday the 29th of September to 7 pm Sunday 1st of October.  Omar Samra mentioned on his official Facebook Page that he had a total rowing experience of 30 minutes before he signed up to the challenge, that’s it, which we find very challenging and interesting.
