The Oceans7 is a grueling challenge consisting of seven of the most dangerous open water swims in the world. These swims range in distance from 9 to 26 miles, and must be completed without assistance from others, or the use of equipment of any kind.
During each swim, swimmers can expect to encounter strong currents, extreme cold, and dangerous sea life. Due to these factors, swimmers are permitted to have a support crew, and a safety boat. The crew is permitted to assist swimmers with hydration and nutrition stops every 30 minutes, to ensure they are getting the proper fuel to have a successful swim. Without the proper nutrition and hydration, it would be impossible to succeed.
We have been fortunate enough to team up with ANS Performance in pursuit of this challenge, and are excited to use these products throughout our training and preparation for each channel swim.
We will be the first set of twins in history to complete this challenge and have decided to use it as an opportunity to raise awareness for global ocean conservation efforts. We are passionate about the ocean, and the efforts that are made to protect it, and the environment. We are thrilled that ANS Performance shares our passion for conservation efforts, as they have pledged to donate funds for global reforestation projects through the sale of their new vegan Fresh1 protein. ANS Performance is setting the bar high, and we are lucky to have them in our corner!”
