Omar Samra, the Egyptian adventurer has done many magnificent stunts and challenges over the past few years.
Well now he’s teamed up with Omar Nour for another bigger challenge; crossing the Atlantic ocean!
Not content with being the first Egyptian to climb Mount Everest, Egyptian adventurer and entrepreneur Omar Samra teams up with triathlete Omar Nour to row a 7.5m long two-seater boat across the Atlantic Ocean. The pair will be competing with other teams on the 5,000 km race and battling 15 m high waves in winter conditions, storms, sleep deprivation and being in total darkness and isolation.
We really do have the best job. #TeamO2 are off 🚀 @omarsamra & @omarnour doing their 100 hour training for #TWAC2017. All the best guys. pic.twitter.com/1OujVvNFXa
