Dottie set new World Record in her Age Group Category in the World Indoor Rowing Championship in Boston on March 1st. This would be Lightweight Women, agest 80 – 84. It is a well attended international crowd and Dottie bettered her 2013 winning time by about 7 seconds. Her 2,000 meter time was 9:39:6. Unfortunately right after she got her trophy she (and a couple others) tripped on the temporary stage in the Arena and she took a tumble. Fractured her collarbone and badly bruised her hamstring. No surgery required and she continued today to NYC, riding with very good friends who had come in as cheerleaders/coxswain. She feels pretty good thanks to ice, Advil and a New World Record but she’s badly bruised.
