Fit­bit record drives com­pet­i­tive Spirit in ra­dio war

Pilbara News - - News - Ali­cia Per­era

A world record set by Spirit Ra­dio 1260 Kar­ratha has been top­pled by Bris­bane’s top break­fast ra­dio show — but the lo­cal team say they are not ready to ad­mit de­feat just yet.

Last Wed­nes­day, Bris­bane ra­dio sta­tion Hit 105 break­fast an­nounc­ers Stav David­son and Abby Cole­man at­tempted to set a new record for “Most Fit­bit Steps By Two Peo­ple In An Hour While Host­ing A Ra­dio Show”, a ti­tle proudly held since March 2 by Kar­ratha pre­sen­ters Pablo Miller and Angie Ay­ers.

Miller and Ay­ers’ record stood at a com­bined 14,223 steps in an hour and the Hit 105 team beat it with 15,772 steps, crush­ing Miller, who they crossed to dur­ing judg­ing. He told them he had not re­lin­quished the fight, claim­ing “this is war” and the duo would be in train­ing all week to at­tempt to re-claim the ti­tle live on-air to­day.

Speak­ing later in the week, he said that train­ing may have ta­pered off a lit­tle though the will to win had not.

“If any­thing, we have stopped train­ing,” he said. “We think it’s prob­a­bly best to put our feet up for the week so we are fresh. Per­fect tim­ing to hit the couch to en­joy watch­ing some Rio 2016 for in­spi­ra­tion.

“With only one good knee be­tween the two of us, rest is the best train­ing we can do.”

To hear how the team goes at their sec­ond at­tempt, tune in to Spirit 1260 at 8.30am to­day.
