It’s been quite a weekend, two marathon records, first up was the amazing Rod Chinn still on a rich vein of record breaking. Broke a long standing 60-69 lwt record held since 2007 by Malcom Fawcett. Malcom was a Fletcher squad athlete so keeping the record in the family – fabulous row Rod in a new record time of 2:47:22
Then the incredible James Cracknell still rocking it at 48, a superb 2:30:37 to knock over 2 minutes off the old 40-49 hwt record.
This makes James the second fastest British rower behind Graham Benton (another Fletcher squad athlete) who set his time in the 30-39 hwt category back in 2012.
In awe of these athletes
