Jordan Beecher and Captain Jon Armstrong are making their final preparations on the Canary Island of La Gomera for what will be an epic row of around 3,000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean that starts tomorrow (12th December).
Jon is a serving officer with the Royal Gurkha Rifles, and Blesma Member Jordan was a Corporal in the Parachute Regiment before being injured in Afghanistan in 2012. He stepped on an IED which resulted in him losing his left leg below the knee. The pair have been friends for years having served in Afghanistan together.
In 2015, Jon completed a 1,000-mile Arctic Expedition while Jordan won multiple gold medals in rowing at the inaugural Invictus Games in London in 2014.Read more
