I think we already knew this, but now it's published in a journal.

Atlantic row by Pedro - Sat 15th Aug 2009, 6:48pm
In January 2010 I'm going to follow in Dan and Rich's 'footsteps' and row across the Atlantic. I've set up a website called One Million Strokes (it's just over 3000 miles!) at www.onemillionstrokes.org.uk , it's still a work in progress. Take a look if you have a minute. Thanks!
Rowing aid on BBC's Dragon's Den by Mark - Thu 30th Jul 2009, 3:48pm
An interesting GCSE D&T concept from a student and rower on Dragon's Den tonight:

Two plastic/rubber blocks that surround the handle, one for each hand, that prevent wear to the hands and blister formation "without interfering with rowing technique".

Will post a BBC iPlayer link when available. (2 replies...)
Seb Swings Stalin the Swan by Jij - Fri 29th May 2009, 9:29am
A friend of mine stumbled across this recent article here.

Read carefully for the name of the assailant.

It seems that's 'Sebastian P' 1-0 'Stalin' the Swan.

Have just opened a load of Christmas crackers.

Alastair Hignell by Simon - Sun 14th Dec 2008, 10:46pm
Alastair Hignell was featured in Sports Personality of the Year this evening. For those who don't know, he was an excellent rugby commentator on FiveLive who retired this year. He has degenerative MS, and broadcast with it for eight years, without the illness being widely known by the general public.

Anyway, they said on the show that he was the last person to captain both CUCC and CURFC. He still holds the Cambridge points record for a Varsity rugby march. He has scored a try for England and a century against the West Indies (the latter for his county side). Astonishing.

PS Anyone want to write a "best radio commentator" poll?
