101-year-old veteran breaks rowing world record

A local 101-year-old veteran has broken a world record for rowing.



Sid Zacharais says he's been training to break that record since the spring.



Zacharais was joined by his family and friends at Atria Darien, a senior living community.



He rowed 1,000 meters in eight minutes and 24 seconds yesterday. 



Zacharais is a Pearl Harbor and Coast Guard veteran, originally from New York City. 



He says that he's glad that he can still row at 101 years old.
