I would like to see it.

What a great pace to hold for a minute! A minute is a long time when you're going flat-out.

Maybe you could add some of your other times/distances and Boar could add them to the leaderboard?

jt said:I am not after copying you, I think it would be hard to copy 20 years younger and a foot taller!

But am interested in the type of training you do. Whats your Discuss pb? (with a 2kg no Perris Wilkins here!)

I agree with you regarding Terry and the 500m I guess we haven't seen him do it for a reason.


My discus PB is 63.00m from back in 2011. I don't think anyone knows what Periss' actual 2kg personal best was! Wink Unfortunately my best throwing days are probably behind me though as I had a lumbar disc replacement at L5/S1 back in 2013 and haven't given it the same complete focus since then.

Well f*ck me. That's fast.

How long have you been rowing? A quick biography would be really interesting.

It's a bit surreal how Macroth has had pretty much the top of the rankings to himself for a decade or so then all these beasts turn up in the same year.

Thank covid for that?

Iím 32 now and did do a little bit as a teenager and entered BIRC in the 2k back in Ď05. I didnít pick the handle up between about 2007 and 2018 when I started sprint training again.

Iím 118kg, 198cm with a 210cm arm span. I came 7th at the Commonwealth Games in 2010 in the discus, and a frustrating 4th at this years World Indoor rowing champs in the 500m back in February.

I think thatís about it really - Iíve been a long time lurker on Sugden since about 2010!

Thats a pretty decent "ape factor"

Did you ever throw against Lawrence Okoye? I reckon he would have a decent 100m on the erg.

Maybe we start a Fantasy rowing league

Fantasise who you would like to see row what distance.

Nice rundown, and that is some ridiculous rowing! Good to see something on slides as well, never seen them used before.

Yes, I trained and lived with Lawrence for a month in America in March 2012. I twinged my back handing out 225kg on the bench press which I think he tripled! lol

Jason starts the year with one rower, he buys 6 more through the year and sells 4.

How many rowers does Jason have left?

A tidy triple, how about the 7ft syringe was he really known as that in throwing circles?

I've never heard that phrase before! I'm not just saying this, but I've never seen or heard anything to suggest he isn't a clean athlete. There are far weaker athletes who I'd have stronger suspicions of.

Apologies, that comment was not directed towards Lawrence.

There was a far taller thrower with American links who I had heard called the 7ft syringe, he and his wife had both served bans.
