Only Men Aboard

It was Only Men Afloat at the new Cardiff International White Water Centre, when singing sensation Only Men Aloud stepped in to test the waters.

AHOY!: Only Men Aload testing the water at Cardiff's International Sports Village

The male-voice choir, who rose to fame after landing the top spot in the BBC’s ‘Last Choir Standing’ competition, attended a special preview day ahead of the centre being open to the public next Monday.

Andy Mulligan of Only Men Aloud said: “The choir were delighted to have the opportunity to be one of the first on the course, we had a fantastic time and didn’t want the day to end, and we are definitely hoping to have another go soon.”

The centre, will provide the UK with its first Olympic-standard pumped water canoe slalom course, offering canoeing and white water rafting facilities ranging from starter to recreational through to full international competition use.
It has been constructed over the last two years in the International Sports Village in Cardiff Bay and has been designed by French company, HydroStadium who have designed similar courses for the Sydney, Athens and Beijing Olympics.

At the moment, the choir are running their ‘VOTE OMA’ campaign to land a Classical Brit Award in the NS&I Album of the Year category for their second album Band of Brothers’.

The boys are touring the country to drum up support and ensure their home city and nation gets behind them.

You can vote online before the deadline of April 23 on and are reminded to cast your vote based on their singing (not swimming) capabilities.
