Bryce Carlson departed St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada, on June 27, rowing solo and unassisted across the North Atlantic Ocean. He arrived at St. Mary's, Isles of Scilly, UK, on August 4. His time of 38 days, 6 hours and 49 minutes beat the previous world record for the 2,000 mile journey by 15 days. The Seven Hills School biology teacher and endurance athlete is the first American to complete a west-to-east, solo, unassisted row across the North Atlantic.

Bryce Carlson, Ph.D., recently spoke with Cincinnati Edition's Dan Hurley about his remarkable voyage.
