Greatest Moment

Watching Sydney 2000 Opening Ceremony


Brock began rowing while in school at age 13, stopping a year after school to pursue other interests. It wasn’t until Brock was involved in a workplace accident where he lost a finger and some use of the remaining three, that he became involved with a different sport, Para-canoe.

When the IPC decided not to include his class in the 2016 Rio Games, Brock transferred from Para-canoeing to Para-rowing after being invited to trial the new sport.

Brock competed at the 2016 Final Paralympic Qualification Regatta as well as the 2016 Gavirate International Para-rowing Regatta, winning both regattas in the LTA Mixed Coxed Four crew.

Brock loves being active, and enjoys kayaking, adventure training, scuba diving, and sailing in his spare time.

In 10 years, Brock is hoping to be giving back to sport by being a coach or mentor to other athletes

Most embarrassing moment: Falling into the water at the Qualification Regatta in front of the whole Australian team but posted a PB five minutes later.

Brock is also involved with the Surf Life Saving Club in mentoring, coaching, and speaking to club members
