Former Para-athlete Kelda Wood visited the Human Performance Centre in preparation for her attempt to solo row the Atlantic from East to West. She will be the first solo adaptive person to ever attempt this crossing and only the 6th ever solo female. She’s linking the campaign strongly to the charity Climbing Out and aims to “Raise awareness, Raise funds and Raise hope for young people facing life changing challenges”. Franky Mulloy, Research Fellow in Biomechanics, explains the technology and support the university will be providing to help Kelda achieve her goal.
