British Indoor Rowing Championships 2004

In November 2004, two FES-rowers Robin Gibbons and Sol Solomou demonstrated the feasibility of FES-rowing by competing in the British Indoor Rowing Championships (BIRC) in Birmingham UK. This historic event highlighted, for the first time, that individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI) could compete on an equal basis in a national sporting event. The event was recognised by the presentation of special medals to Robin and Sol by the Olympic gold medallist, James Cracknell. It also heralded the introduction of a new category at the Championships; FES-rowing.
