Tracks to Rio: Mark Aldred, rower

In 2012, key British Olympians and Paralympians such as Sir Chris Hoy and Richard Whitehead wore our headphones both in training and preparation before their main events. Ahead of Rio 2016, a new generation of athletes share with us the music that helps them get into the zone.

Mark Aldred will be joining team mate Chris Bartley this summer in Rio for his first Olympic games after firmly establishing himself in the highly-competitive lightweight men’s squad for the past 4 years. He has raced in the lightweight four since 2014, helping to qualify the boat for the Rio Games as well as winning medals at the World and European Championships.

Our truly immersive noise-isolating P5 Wireless headphones enable athletes to totally focus, whether they are training or winding down.


Here’s what Mark will be listening to in the run-up to the Rio 2016 Olympics:

The Verve – Bitter Sweet Symphony

Coldplay – The Scientist

Eminen – Stan

Snow Patrol – Chasing Cars

Train – Drops of Jupiter

Phil Collins – Another Day in Paradise

Wiz Khalifa – Black and Yellow

Oasis – Champagne Supernova

Stereophonics – Mr Writer

Bryan Adams – Summer of ’69

Turn on, tune in, chill out.
