I suspect the fastest time may not be authentic...

Thanks, Gents. I wouldn't want to cast aspersions ...

Cheers,

Well spotted, it would be a new British record! I've emailed Concept2 and asked them to verify or remove it. I'm sure I've read that, in general, they don't like making changes to the rankings but as this would be a record hopefully they will. They also change / validate for race results.

Again inspired by others’ great results and the urge to get another green in the meta-Nonathlon I went for the 500m, which also fit with the recent C2CTC sprints. As it turned out I was lucky to improve my PB by 0.1sec. Being high on this result I also managed to improve the 100m as well by 3 tenths :-)

Indeed, that's a fine 500. I've never cracked 1:30.

It is not likely that I ever will beat my PB’s ! I’m 10 years older now, since I did them all in 2008-09.

Well done Tako ^O^ ^O^ ^O^. I would love to go sub 1:30 one day!

Mikkel, It is maybe not just the 10 years that make it hard; your PBs are also fantastically good!

Mikkel, you are still very fast!

I managed a new PB in the 60' today, improving from 15652 to 15817. I think I could go a bit faster too.

Cheers,
Colin

Thanks for all the feedback!

Colin, you might be struggling with sub 1:30 but your longer distances are far out of my reach

Thanks, Max! This is also 2nd best this year, and top spot is again unverified ...

I’ll take that back. Just broke my pb on the 100 meters by 0.2 seconds and my sb by half a second ! :shock:
