FIVE World Record attempt

Mike Buss Targets £5,000 in Support of Help for Heroes at the Swindon Designer Outlet - THIS WEEKEND 
 
Fresh from setting two new world records, endurance athlete Mike Buss has set his sights on breaking FIVE fitness world records in 30 hours this weekend.
 
The world record attempt will be the centrepiece of a two-day Help for Heroes Festival at the Swindon Designer Outlet.
 
A race to five world records:
Mike Buss (centre back) will attempt five world records at the Swindon Designer Outlet
 
He will attempt to beat world records for the Multi-Stage Fitness Test carrying a 40lb pack, 60lb pack and 120lb pack (8 stone).
 
To make things extraordinarily difficult, Mike Buss will attempt the same fitness test in a Nuclear, Chemical and Biological warfare suit with respirator – and 40lb rucksack!
 
The respirator cuts down the oxygen supply to 60% of normal airflow, putting greater strain on the heart.
 
On Sunday he will wear the full NCB suit to set a new world record for the most step-ups whilst carrying a 100lb pack.
 
 
Setting five world records within 30 hours will be another world record.
 
The Swindon Designer Outlet is fully supporting Mike’s fundraising efforts and £5,000 target.
 
Shoppers can even break an unusual world record themselves.
 
There will be performances by live bands - Sleeping with Giants and Theo Altieri, BlueBelles Majorettes, Hot Steppers Street Dance, first aid demonstrations by AM Medical Services and Diamond sports therapy is offering 15 minute massage treatments in exchange for donations.
 
Help for Heroes
 
"Mike Buss is an inspiration to us all," commented Nick Williams, marketing manager at Swindon Designer Outlet, "his dedication to raising money for Help for Heroes knows no bounds and we’re proud to be hosting his world record attempts here."
  
"My tagline ‘Beyond Impossible’ is what I am getting known for," said Mike.
 
"This has pushed me even further to make these challenges really difficult. It helps to grab the public’s attention in aid of army guys fighting on the frontline.
 
"I was discharged from the army after injury and am doing all I can to help them. We’d love to see a good crowd but if you can’t get there this weekend, you can still donate online."
