Alastair Mckean

Medal winning rower at the Paralympic Games

A bronze medal winner in rowing at the 2008 Paralympic Games in Beijing, Briton Alastair Mckean is an inspiration to everyone and an Olympic speaker who never fails to leave his audience informed and entertained.

Before being an Olympic winner, Alastair won various junior and junior-senior coastal titles but a serious road accident ended that phase of his career. Six years later, he was back in the winning seat, rowing to a gold medal in the LTA (legs, trunk and arms) coxed four at the World Rowing Championships in Japan and repeating the feat the following year at the World Rowing Championships in Eton, England. A year later and Alastair had a silver medal to add to his collection.

Alastair is an Olympic speaker in more ways than one – he can often be seen in schools helping youngsters out with their fitness and generally promoting the benefits of rowing and what a great sport it can be. On top of that, Alastair is a fully-qualified teacher and has taught the subjects of history and geography at Canterbury High School. In his spare time, Mckean can be found instructing students at the King’s School Canterbury and the University of Kent how to row.

Always keen to share his expertise and his life experiences, Alastair Mckean travels around the country delighting audiences of many types and sizes with his truly inspirational story.
