Rowing Ireland has announced it is seeking a male athlete to attempt to qualify a boat for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.
The national governing body says it is seeking a male athlete in the PR2 classification, with the individual expected to form part of a mixed double scull pairing.
World Rowing defines the PR2 class as: "Rowers who have trunk and arm movement, who are unable to use their legs to propel the sliding seat".
Rowing Ireland has invited people who believe they might qualify as a PR2 athlete to email the national governing body.
The individual must have a competitive nature, strong upper body and have either decreased mobility or no use of their legs.
They must also be prepared to commit to participating in the high-performance programme.
Rowing Ireland has invited interested parties to email [email protected] by September 14.
Emails should include a brief overview of sporting experience, with successful applicants then invited for further testing.
As well as pursuing qualification for Tokyo 2020, Rowing Ireland says the male athlete will also begin preparations for the Paris 2024 Paralympic qualification cycle.
