Pulling through

Bryce Carlson merrily rowed his way right into the record books

A rower since high school, Bryce Andrew Carlson 11G coached crew on Emory’s campus for three seasons. When he’s not in his Cincinnati classroom teaching biology to high school kids, Carlson continues to indulge his love for adventure— running ultramarathons and recently setting a new speed record for a west-to-east solo and unsupported crossing of the North Atlantic. Rowing solo from St. John’s, Newfoundland, to St. Mary’s Harbor in the Isles of Scilly, England, he became the first American to make the two-thousand-mile journey and crushed the previous world record by more than fifteen days, arriving in thirty-eight days, six hours, and forty-nine minutes.
