In May 2013, while he was battling for a berth on Canada’s men’s lightweight fours team, Andrew Todd was struck by a bus while cycling in London, Ont. He suffered several fractures to his right leg and pelvis. After more than 10 surgeries, he could not regain the same power in his right leg.
Still, he remained focused on sport and joined the para-rowing program with the Ottawa Rowing Club. In 2015, he earned a spot on the Canadian LTA4+ (mixed coxed four) crew. They went on to win a bronze medal at the 2015 world championships in France. In June 2016 they won gold at the World Cup III regatta in Poznan, Poland.
Todd started rowing in 2007 at the University of Ottawa.
