An Epic World Record Attempt for Two Melbourne Rowers

by Cameron McKenzie-McHarg on June 25, 2014
If you ever thought a 2km rowing race was a long way, or a marathon was the ultimate challenge, check out what these crazy guys are doing. Two Melbourne rowers Tim Spiteri and Shane Usher will spend the next 2 months aiming to be the first ever crew to row the 8,500km across the Indian Ocean, from Geraldton in Western Australia to Durban, South Africa. Non stop and un-supported.The boys will be putting the 776BC compression range to the ultimate test on the journey. There’s no bigger challenge for all our compression wear, whether it be compression tights, compression shorts and compression long sleeves, but we know that with our garments in their kit bag they can trust their rowing wear to hold up. Not only will this be a new world record but it’s also for a great cause; to raise funds for MS Australia, an organisation close to Tim’s heart. The boys are already 13 days into the journey and are tracking well. You can follow their daily progress at and show your support at Check out a clip of the boys preparing for departure here:
