14 yr old holds all records for his age group

Post by Remo » May 2nd, 2018, 6:19 pm

I ran into this C2 tweet https://twitter.com/concept2/status/991736950502633473 about a kid who now holds every record in his age category. The kid is fast. Oh, he is also 6'5" and 190 lbs.

Started rowing at Cal in 1975 and sculled for a few years thereafter. Still follow the sport religiously. In some Latin languages, "Remo" means "the Rower" or "to row".

Yeah, but I'm 55 years old, so I can still call him a punk. ;)

Congrats and good luck to Isaiah - he's obviously a monster.

What does the railway from Southend to Fenchurch St. have to do with Rowing?

That's funny. I'm 61 and I call my 16 year old "a punk" because he can beat me at 100m. At this point I can beat him at everything else -- he only weighs 145 lbs. Pretty soon though he is going to pass me on everything. But I will make sure he earns it.

Really happy that he is in Sub-7 ... the only one of his PBs I am anywhere near is his FM ... and that was a few years ago.

6'5" ? at 14?

Yeah, I'm a little jealous...I'd love to have the #1 spot in any category for my age group. I keep asking myself how much better I'd do if I were taller, but then I realize, I probably would have played basketball or something...

Nah, basketball has about the highest injury rate of any youth sport. Rowing's a lifetime-sport that's much easier on your body and you'll thank your younger self when you're 70+ and still able to get out on the water :)
