Dublin oarsman Nathan O’Reilly of London Rowing Club has broken 7 Irish 30-39 LM Indoor Rowing Records in 7 Days and raised £4,350 for UK and Irish Health charities.

The attempts were broadcast live on Youtube to 3,000 viewers through the week. The 30-minute record went first, followed without incident by The Hour and 10k. The 5k came down to the wire, the dream being kept alive by a last-gasp 150m rate 50 sprint for the line.

“It was a horrible piece. Horrible from the first stroke and I’d all but given up with 1k to go. The guys in the comments never gave up so credit to them"

The 4 minute was straightforward leaving just the Marathon on Sunday.

“I’d found it fairly easy to sit around rate 29 1:48 split for the half so I thought from there it’s not too far to 1:46 [Marathon World Record] but I was very wrong.” – O’Reilly finished on 1:50.2 for the Marathon, a New Irish Record to complete the 7 in 7 and under the British Record but not quite the World Record.

The total raised for the charities stands at £4,350.
