The true story behind James Cracknell’s boat race victory

News | Mon 8th Apr, 2019

James Cracknell’s feat in winning the Boat Race at 46 after suffering a serious cycling accident in 2010 is extraordinary and inspiring.

Cracknell has also been an inspiration to campaigners for care for traumatic brain injuries through the likes of Headway. His success should not mask the difficulties that he and others go through in dealing with the effects of serious brain injury, however the book Touching Distance written by James Cracknell and his wife Beverly Turner provides a gripping account of the problems that families face and is recommended as background reading in the APIL Guide to Catastrophic Injury Claims edited by Grahame Aldous QC, Stuart McKechnie QC and Jeremy Ford of 9 Gough Chambers.
