Earlier this year Ben was nominated for Disability Wales Emerging Athlete of the Year, after representing GB in Italy at the International Regatta less than two years after his accident.
The Welsh Indoor Rowing Championship occurred this weekend in Grangetown’s Channel View Centre, which has been going since 1999. With hundreds of participants with ages ranging from 11 years old to over 70, proving that anyone has the ability to take up indoor rowing.
As well as the world record, many Championship records were broken that day highlighting the ability of Welsh rowers.
Ben Pritchard is not only good at indoor rowing, but he has won many Regattas on the water, such as the City of Oxford and Sudbury Regattas in 2018, both competing against friend and rowing rival Kingsley Ijomah
Team GB has been developing their para-rowing team, ahead of the Paralympic Games in Tokyo 2020, and are always looking for more para-rowing athletes with potential.
