Para Rowing Foundation is thrilled to support para rowers from Kenya, Argentina and Nigeria as they
compete to claim a spot in the Tokyo Paralympics.

Paralympic Games, freeing them to concentrate on their training.


The recipients of this year’s grant are Peter Odhiambo and Caleb Moseti Kenyansa of Kenya, Kingsley
Ijomah of Nigeria, and Brenda Sardón of Argentina. Peter, Kingsley and Brenda are PR1 so race the
2K course with arms and shoulder only. Caleb is PR2 so races with trunk and arms only. Racing will
take place in Gavirate, Italy from June 4-6.


PRF is an international nonprofit established to broaden the global pathway for individuals with
impairments by supporting them in para rowing as they fully explore their athletic potential. Opportunity
and accessibility are global issues so PRF supports para rowers affiliated with any club or nation.
