High school science teacher from Cincinnati rows solo across the Atlantic Ocean


Bryce Carlson

The high school science teacher from Cincinnati has rowed solo across the Atlantic Ocean, setting a record for a west-to-east crossing. Carlson, 37, arrived at St. Mary’s in the Isles of Scilly, off England’s southwestern tip, late Saturday — 38 days, six hours and 49 minutes and more than 2,000 miles after setting out from St. John’s, Newfoundland, in his 20-foot boat, Lucille. Carlson capsized several times and endured high waves and the remnants of a hurricane during his journey. “I feel like I had a lot of luck along the way, and a lot of help,” Carlson said. “Help from my friends, my family, the community — from some higher power, I don’t know.”

The Olympic champion swimmer had his latest world record corrected to a be a tenth of a second slower thanks to “a problem with the race-timing equipment,” according to the European aquatics federation. So Peaty’s time for winning the 100 breaststroke at the European Championships in Glasgow, Scotland, is 57.10, not 57 flat. Still, it was Peaty’s 10th world record. He is the only swimmer to beat the 58-second mark. Peaty, 23, posted a video of the race on Instagram and wrote, “Thanks for all your messages! I’m doing what I love and moments like these make it all worthwhile. #followyourdream #workhard.”
