HE'S DONE IT!! Commencing on 8 Aug 06 MAA Dave Harris today (11 Aug 06) equalled then broke the World Record continuous endurance indoor row at 1000 local (0900 UK), rowing a staggering 73 hours. Although he would liked to have continued for longer he took the advice of his team and stopped, breaking the record by 1 hour and after covering a staggering distance of 626,125 metres. He already has the Guinness World Records for the greatest distance in 24 hours (307,683 metres, set in Nov 01, which remains unbroken) and also the quickest 100,000 metres (completed in Jan 05 in 6 hours 55 minutes, beating the previous record by 17 minutes).
