34 and 26
Robert Andrew Strachan and Duncan Adamson Brown represent the only Scotland (Aberdeen) based team intent on participating in and winning the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge 2015. Both men are fiercely competitive athletes with a combined rowing experience of over 15 years. They are personal trainers in Aberdeen City and Shire and will be the most physically and mentally prepared crew in the 2015 lineup. Both have a passion for endurance events and this represents their greatest challenge ever. They are relishing the chance to stretch themselves and find out what they are capable of. Their combined personal training expertise really gives Robert and Duncan an edge when it comes to programming and carrying out their training. From strength and stamina to mental toughness, these are the guys to watch.
Duncan is supporting Great Ormond Street Hospital – specifically a promising new research project into the treatmest of epilepsy. This is a cause close to his heart as he suffered from epilepsy from birth until the age of 13 and underwent regular treatment at the hospital. He would not be where he is now without their care and support.
Robert was treated at Aberdeen Children’s Hospital when he was very young for serious respiratory problems and still suffers from mild asthma. The ARCHIE Foundation provides outstanding care for children and parents alike who have to endure long stays in hospital as Robert did. ARCHIE provide free self catering accommodation for parents on-site and work tirelessly to brighten and improve the environment the children stay in. Robert’s share is going towards the latest developments of the children’s wards and grounds.
