Cape Cod Para-Rower an Olympic Hopeful
August 19, 2014
An article on CapeCodOnline profiles 27-year-old East Falmouth para-rower KateLynne Steinke, who is setting her sights on the Summer Olympics.
Para-rowing is similar to conventional rowing, but the boat is modified to meet the needs of the disabled rower. Steinke, who is paralyzed from the waist down, has a boat that features trunk-securing straps and fixed feet, as well as pontoons.
