Joan’s Competion: Alla Lysenko – Ukraine

I thought it would be interesting to profile a few of the rowers Joan will be facing in her Paralympic races.  I’ll start with the ones that are currently considered top contenders (although it should be noted that Joan has had better times than all but one of them!)

Alla Lysenko
Kyev, Ukraine
Two-time World Champion
Fastest time at World Cup 2012:        5:39:52 (Winner of World Cup 2 in Bled, Germany)

Formerly able-bodied, Lysenko 42, suffered a spinal cord injury in a car accident in 1996.  The injury required both legs being amputated.
