One In Five for Sunday 8 July 2012
Danny McBride (right) is the only rower representing New Zealand at next month’s Paralympics in London.
One in Five catches up with him after a training session on Lake Karapiro, and hears how the relative new comer to the sport has become a member of the rowing elite.
And, on the subject of Paralympics, One in Five also takes a look at the very complicated science of classifying athletes.
There are hundreds of classifications for athletes with disabilities – all carefully devised to ensure the athlete who has put in the most effort, has the most skill, and employs the best tactics, is the winner on the day.
