Bio

Brock Ingram began rowing as a 13-year-old but stopped a year after finishing school to pursue other interests. He returned to the water following a workplace accident in 2007 that resulted in him losing a finger and partial use of the other three.

Training to compete in Para-canoe at the 2016 Paralympic Games, Brock returned to rowing when the International Paralympic Committee decided not to include his disability class in the Rio program.

He combined with Jeremy McGrath, Davinia Lefroy, Kathleen Murdoch and coxswain Jo Burnand in the mixed coxed four LTA to win the 2016 Final Paralympic Qualification Regatta in Gavirate, Italy, qualifying Australia’s first ever boat in that class at a Paralympic Games.

Placing fourth in their heat and third in their repechage heat, the Australian team won their final to place sixth overall at Rio 2016.

In his spare time Brock enjoys kayaking, scuba diving and sailing. He currently coaches and mentors members of Surf Life Saving, and would like to continue in this and similar roles into the future.
