Challenged Athletes Live - Interview with Rob Balucas

Join us for an engaging conversation with Bob Babbitt and para-triathlete Rob Balucas.

In 2015 Rob Balucas was training for a half IRONMAN, he lost control of his bicycle, crashed, and sustained a spinal cord injury that left him paralyzed from the waist down. Within 10 days, Rob had recovered enough to begin increasing his activity levels in a wheelchair. He was back to training, but this time as a para-triathlete on a handcycle. He used the Strava app to track his rehab and then worked closely with the engineers to include a handcycle mode for accurate routes and times.

Tune in to hear more about how Rob's passion for sport and how he helped shape a wheelchair athlete community on Strava.
