Martin Strel - Big River Man uses POWERbreathe K5

Martin StrelRecently our Duncan was on yet another trip abroad, lucky him getting to go on all these 'jolly boy's outings' while we slave away at POWERbreathe HQ.

Anyway, joking aside it is all work really......

Duncan's last trip was to Slovenia to go and see the POWERbreathe Distributor    In Tact Group.  Whilst there he was introduced to Martin Strel AKA known as Big River Man. Martin Strel is a legendary Guinness record marathon swimmer, who has always been looking for the challenges of impossible and the Amazon was the recent one. On April 7th, 2007 Martin Strel completed his epic Amazon river swim all the way from Atalaya (Peru) to the Atlantic Ocean at Belém (Brazil). He was struggling the river for 66 days for more than 10 hours a day and totally swam 5268 kms or 3274 miles. He became a wordwide hero.

We caught up with Martin in Slovenia and tested out the POWERbreathe K5 on him. Martin's next challenge is a swim down the Grand Canyon and he will be using the POWERbreathe K5 as part of his training.  Martin is a keen user of the device and as you can see from this video he trains with his POWERbreathe while driving.
