The results are now in – over the full length of the challenge between 21 and 31 May, the global community covered an astounding 51,982,869 metres!
To put that distance into context, it equates to:
- More than 63 trips to the International Space Station (and back!)
- 1.2 laps of the equator
- 4.7 laps around the moon
- or over 2599 lengths of the Sea Forest Waterway – the host venue for the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games
While there were many great achievements from all the nations and participants involved, we wanted especially recognise Australians Stephen French (PR2) and Lindy Hou (PR3 – VI) who contributed the most metres for a male and female para-rower, respectively, in the whole challenge!
Congratulations and thank you to everyone who participated in the challenge!
