I vote for 1k just for personal reasons and ability. I consider 2k still as The distance. In addition to 2k shorter distances should be more in the picture in all big events as well. That is the way how you get more people involved in this sport. A good example is 250m c2ctc challenge this month , 4...

Carla, The National Championships in different countries are usually arranged by Concept2 locally. Thus there should be a co-operation inside Concept2 in order to get those local times ranked. As I understand there is not such a system. Many of the top on the water rowers do not mind to rank the tim...

I recommend! Joined myself the first Championships last October in Auckland. Great fun. Good atmosphere, enthusiastic both young and old people. Well organized games. My flight took 21 hours in one direction. It was worthwhile. Thanks!

Correct me if I am wrong Carl Henrik. Didn't Lassi Karonen perform a new 2k Swedish Record 5:47.5 just two weeks ago?

2. Hanna Tuominen 7.08.3

14,000 does not sound much. Here in Finland there are over 10,000 participants in the biggest annual rowing competition Sulkava race. :)

Nice PB gcanyon! I am afraid the experts has not much to tell about your splits and HR if you don't give more facts about yourself. I complete usually my 5k PB races with max HR 150+ not because I am so good but just because I am that old. :)

Re: Pertti Karppinen 5:52 This time was accomplished by Karppinen in 1988 in connection with the Finnish Championships where the official distance was 2000m already then. Karppinen was at that time 35 years of age. The ergometer was model B. All this has been confirmed by the Finnish distributor Fin...

Hi Paul, Karppinen was definitely born in 1953. On April 18th I got an email from the managing director of the Finnish C2 distributor as follows: "Karppinen has accomplished the time 5:52 but it was before he turned 40. We have tried to correct the WR status without success". I will contact Finnrowi...

I wrote my thread on April 18th after I heard from the Finnish C2 distributor that Karppinen's time 5:52 was erged before he turned 40. Karppinen himself has hardly considered himself a world record holder so removing his time from the WR list is by no means a frustrating procedure for him. As I see...
