I have been a regular user of the Concept2 rower since 2001, originally as able bodied.
I had a cycling accident in July 2016 resulting in spinal cord injury. I am a tetraplegic; therefore I am an adaptive Concept2 rower.
For the 30+ years prior to this accident I was a competitive athlete (track/field/cross country) who used cycling and rowing as a support for athletics. Post accident I have returned to athletics (throws only) where I am classified by British Athletics as F35.
My life time best perfomances as an able bodied Concept2 rower were all achieved on the 'Model D' in 2004 (when I was 47). These are:
