We are joined by Colleen Drummond As if holding 2 Ski Erg world records wasn't enough. December 12/13th she is going a step further and is going for 3 world records.
The records she currently holds are
Female 40-49 Longest Continuous Ski - 17 hours
Female 40-49 Quickest 100,000 meters - 08:57:44
Absolutely incredible. If you've ever been on one of these things you know how truly horrendous they can be. Even then 17 hours of any sustained activity is a big ask but the fact it was on a ski erg makes it even more impressive! So what crazy records is she going after now?
Exceed 191,000 meters in 24 hours
Beat her own record of 17 continuous hours.
Beat the overall continuous record held by Nathanael Gey, France (34:41:26) She's rounding up to 36 hours because why not! (She hasn't even mentioned this until now so we were shocked!)
Naturally, we want to know how she even got into all this in the first place and her journey through the records up until this point. We have numerous questions to get through, and as she's a fan of the show, she was fully prepared for our chaotic approach! We are also going to get her back on once shes attempted the records (& I'm sure smashed them) to see how it went!
We know times are tough at the moment but if you have any spare cash we'd ask that you donate in support of Colleen on these mammoth feats.
"2020 has been a challenging time across the world. As Christmas approaches there are people who are facing a financial struggle so severe that being able to enjoy something as simple, yet special, as a Christmas Dinner is going to be almost impossible to fund.
On the 12th and 13th December 2020, I will be attempting to break 2 World Records in my age group on my Concept 2 Skierg. The first is to exceed the current record of 191000 metres in 24 hours. The second is to do this consecutively as a continuous ski and exceed the current record of 17 hours.
My goal is to raise as much money as possible for Basingstoke Food Bank so that everyone in this area, young and old alike, can enjoy a Christmas Dinner.
If gyms are not affected by a lockdown I will be completing this at The Ministry Gym in Chineham, Basingstoke. If the gyms are forced to shut their doors I will be doing it at home.
I realise times are extremely tough so I am asking anybody who can to donate £1. Every penny will be going directly to the Charity.
If you are unable to donate money but are able to donate food directly to the Food Bank this will also be gratefully received.
Let's make Christmas Day 2020 one that everyone can look forward to."
