Mission Accomplished.

I learned in the Marine Corps that the only thing that matters was results.

Competition is an excellent way to maximize our results.

Love the interactions. Good eye-opener!

Re: Questioning Luanne Suplick lightweight 60min WR

John,

It is always good to express oneself. The process of change is exciting and challenging.

Those on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube have already transformed the erging community.

Thanks for your comments. Different opinions are always a good source of growth.

Semper Fi,

Bill

Re: Questioning Luanne Suplick lightweight 60min WR

Eric Murray may also fall in the category of little or no metres logged on the Concept 2 Website. However, his on the water accomplishments are well know. Even Steven Geary may not have been a big logger of metres on the erg but what a rower! People have different personalities, so some may not feel...

Re: Questioning Luanne Suplick lightweight 60min WR

Jack,

A few of us are trying to contact Ms. Roebuck via social media. She may have given up the sport after 53,233 lifetime meters.

Concept 2 Rules and Regulations Number 10 The Ranking is an honor based system. Using any methods to gain an unfair advantage or entering false or erroneous information are not allowed. Some self-policing may be required some times, if possible. As technology changes so will the ranking system. Unti...

Re: How do i train hard enough to achieve 30 million metres a year

The training required to be able to achieve 30 million in a year would depend on the current physical condition of the individual. Some one who has been rowing for a few months may be able to achieve this goal depending on how the body adapts to the constant repetitive motion of rowing. The pace one...

Re: Questioning Luanne Suplick lightweight 60min WR

Jim, I received the email from Dena a little while ago and gave her the corrected info about Lorraine. So, we may see some movement on the rankings. She is still waiting to hear from Ruth Roebuck but I am thinking she may have a long wait. And, I sent Lorraine a message to do a ranking 60' before th...

Re: Questioning Luanne Suplick lightweight 60min WR

Jim, Lorraine is one of the hardest working athletes to have attacked the erg community. Her CrossFit training along with the erg workouts are truly amazing. If we can determine the legitimacy of Ruth Roebuck's 10k and 60' marks then we will have a clearer picture of the 30-39 lightweight category. ...

Re: Questioning Luanne Suplick lightweight 60min WR

To all, Update: Luanne Suplick's 60-minute record was completed as an interval workout. Dena will update the world record once she checks out the next fastest. The next fastest is Ruth Roebuck with a 16015m for an hour. This is highly remarkable as well. I have already questioned Ruth's 10k mark. 10...

Re: Questioning Luanne Suplick lightweight 60min WR

Henry, Very true about some users. Not all are experts on modern day devices. Entering the correct data may not be on the highest priority list as well. With the number of entries being made on the Concept 2 Website, there is bound to a percentage of errors. No doubt, we do not live in the perfect w...

Re: Questioning Luanne Suplick lightweight 60min WR

Jim,

Totally agree. I am still amazed by super fast times without other attempts at shorter and longer distances. People who rank their times and/or distances you would think are competitive and would attempt other events as well to see where they stand.

Thanks for your input.

Re: Questioning Luanne Suplick lightweight 60min WR

Citroen, Do you really want to bring up that topic on this thread? I am just questioning some world records. People submit times and distances on the Concept 2 Website for various reasons. I believe for receiving some sort of recognition. When the records are outside the norm then I believe it shoul...

Re: Questioning Luanne Suplick lightweight 60min WR

John, Thanks for you opinion. We have different views on Rod. However, I do challenge all records that appear extraordinary compared to the closest competitors. If you see something strange then you investigate. Concept 2 is the governing body for records rowed on their machine. They have there own ...

Re: Questioning Luanne Suplick lightweight 60min WR

Gentlemen, Thanks again for the comments. Ron Freed times, in my opinion, were not possible for someone of his height and weight. Doing a data analysis of all rowers in the lightweight category could reveal the limitations either because of weight or height. Highly possible he rowed on a faulty mach...
