jt said:Good vid, very impressive time.

It looked like he knew what he was doing so I think he may of had some ''Cheeky " practice

The spoilsport in me should point out it is a World best unless he is willing to take a test.

Would love to see Tom Stoltman have a crack pretty sure all the top strongmen would do well.

I don't think any of the top strongmen would even try and pretend they're eligible for any official records, but this is without a doubt an impressive feat of power/strength!

jt said:Thats great pacing, one mans mad sprint (35spm ) is another mans warm up. Kudos.

Did you see Colossal has done 2.58 something @20spm?

There's no prizes for doing it in fewer strokes.. I had a couple of attempts at a slightly higher rate but handled down both goes unfortunately Unhappy

1.13.0 very nice.

Did you see the 13year old Zimbabwean girl did 1.31.9? She is 6'4'' so many sports she could excel at.

Wow that is a ridiculous time! It'll be interesting to see which direction she gets pulled in as she gets older too. I expect the American university scholarship offers are coming in already!

macroth said:Qualifying was a bit of a hassle, wasn't worth it for me. Seems like many people didn't bother, compared to other years.

Bad luck with the computer glitch Unhappy , would you have podiumed (open) or won (30-39)? Stupid online competitions.

Just watched the video. Very solid row indeed, not much of a fade at the end.

Obviously it's hard to say as I didn't have to react to the race start. I think it should have been good enough for bronze in the open behind Anton the Ukranian who pulled 1:12.8 and Big Phil who pulled 1:11.6.

Brutal Eek
Proper fly and die there, and nice to see someone pulling so fast but with a relatively low rate. Well done Grin

I definitely rely more on the strength and stroke length than I do the rate, but this was an attempt at a very controlled first 250m rather than go out hitting max watts from the start. If I did open up with 1:03 pulls I'd more than lose the benefits after about 300m, but it's a strategy that seems to work for Phil!

Has anyone competed / is anyone competing in the World Indoor Rowing Championships this week?

I was all set to race yesterday until two minutes before and the system booted me out for connectivity issues. Ended up doing a standalone time trial of 1.13:0 cruelly rounded up from 1:12.9!

Jonathan said:My first top spot (though I'm sure I won't stay there long)!! Grin

30 minutes - 8471 metres

That's a really impressive half hour piece, well done mate!

Thanks for that. An illustrious sporting past. I'm a couple of inches taller than you, but about the same weight. Wingspan is 213cm. I've only just started rowing, but I'm quite enjoying it.
Look forward to seeing you pushing your times in the coming months. Your 1000m is the only one where I feel like I'm in the same ballpark as you.

I look forward to following your progress, clearly you have the levers and potential to go very fast!

The 1000m is something I've been meaning to revisit - both my 1k and 2k time were done at rate 24 as I just don't have the fitness to rate higher for long!

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.

Ah yes, Carl Myerscough, 6ft10, The Blackpool Tower. Roided Up to his eyeballs.

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.

jt said: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.

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

Well f*ck me. That's fast.
How long have you been rowing? A quick biography would be really interesting.

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!

Sparrow said: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?

Thanks! These are the ones I can remember for now:

100m - 13.3 (12.5 on slides)
500m - 1:13.2
1000m - 2:52.5
2000m - 6:13.3
30r20 - 8405

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.

jt said:We just need Big Phil to join up and Terry to break the 500m WR when he finds a C2 to complete the awesomeness of this thread.

Oh yeah and Tom Stoltman to do a 100m.

This is always an interesting discussion about strongmen and 500m rowing. I've seen Terry's comments at the beginning of this thread. I expect he could go sub 1:15 with reasonable ease, and I'd love to see him put down a fast time.

But, 1:10 is a big jump from 1:15. Chad Wesley Smith did 1:14.4, and Brian Shaw 1:14.6 as far as I'm aware.

I will just add there is a whole 200 watts difference between 1:15 (820W) and 1:10 (1020W), and that's +25% extra force required as the watts curve means the extra power needed goes up quickly as the splits get lower.

Bearing in mind that Big Phil is already a physical specimen practically designed for the event, I would struggle to put any money on anyone from other sports beating his world record!

Very nice, I wonder if the admin will put you on the list this time.
Can you give us a brief run down on your training? (pleaseGrin )

At the moment my training is a bit mixed between discus throwing and indoor rowing so I wouldn't exactly say I'm someone to copy!

In terms of rowing I'm doing three sessions a week, two sprint focused and one longer steady row. A few months ago my sprint sessions would be something like 3x250 with 7:00 rest, or 350/250/200 with 7:00 rest, but more recently leading up to BRIC I've been putting in lots of single effort rate capped pieces like 500m at r20, or 1:00 at r26 etc, to try and improve stroke efficiency using SPI as a metric.

In the weight room I'm just cycling through three sessions.. legs, push and pull.

And, throwing my plates twice a week on top of that! Happy
