They mean he slept 3 hrs per 24 hour period. You can't make this stuff up. (Ha) His wikipedia page is very entertaining https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_HP_Young
Anyone else see on his website where it claims he slept an average of 3 hours a day ("average day sleep") for a consecutive 19 months, while running more than 26 miles per day sustained over that same period?
Do they mean he napped for an average of 3 hours during the day while then sleeping for 8-10 hours at night? Or do they seriously want us to believe that he ran > 180 miles per week on 3 hours sleep for a year and a half without a break?
Because if that's the case, he both needs to get help for his insomnia and must have some rare genetic mutation that should be studied.
The good news is he has pacers lined up.
Pennsylvania: Jill Greathouse
New Jersey; Mike Rossi
West Virginia: Gregory Price
Illinois: Kip Litton
Indiana: Anne Gemkow
As it was an age group race and not a major international (which shouldn't count as GB representation anyway but that's a different argument) seems hard to find definite results that far back - doesn't help his credibility though.
It claims on his wikipedia page that he "represented GB (age group 20-24) winning 2004 European Long Distance triathlon Bronze Medal in Immenstadt, Germany."
Upon further research, I don't thing a european long distance triathlon even took place in germany that year.
Here is a link to results of 2004 of the european triathlon union, no such championship in germany exists. Is this accurate?
Speaking of Twitter time stamps...here is his Twitter Account:
Last pic shows him running with an older guy - not saying that the old guy is slow, but my bets are that he is no way in hell running sub 8:30 pace for this shot!
Mike Rossi can suggest a lawyer. He is on AOL, so you know he is good.
lol at the legal threats. Typical.
