Stuart Wood

Paracanoe - Podium Potential

Stuart is a graduate from the University of Bath where he studied Maths, Physics and Computer Science, and he now works in Software Development in Nottingham.  Stuart has been a keen paddler for a number of years and having originally started in the KL3, he has very much found his form in the VL3.

A breakthrough season in 2019 saw him come away with two international medals, including bronze at the World Championships which qualified the British VL3 boat quota place for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.

In June 2021 it was announced that Stuart had been selected as part of the paracanoe team for his debut Paralympic Games, where he will compete in the VL3.
