News24 speak to adventurers Peter van Kets and Braam Malherbe about their upcoming attempt to row from Cape Town to Rio. This trip has never been attempted before, and if the two make it to Rio, they will be the first in the world to complete the 6,700 kms row unassisted.

The athletes are taking the trip on to raise awareness about the DOT app, and hope to get 5 million people on the app by the time they complete their adventure. Find out more about the app which Malherbe describes as ‘Facebook for the planet,’ by clicking on News24 logo:
