James Ketchell is a serial adventurer, motivational speaker and Scouting ambassador.
In 2007, James was recovering from a serious motorcycle accident that left him with broken legs and a severely broken and dislocated ankle. The prognosis was that he was likely to suffer a permanent walking impairment and would certainly not be able to continue the active physical lifestyle he had enjoyed up to that point. James decided to respond to this challenge in the only way he knew how, and with dogged determination, set about physical tasks that most of us can only imagine experiencing.
In 2010, James rowed single-handed across the Atlantic Ocean. In 2011, he reached the summit of Mount Everest. In 2013, James embarked on an 18,000 mile unsupported global cycle, through 20 countries and cycling on average 100 miles a day. The key message that James reveals from completing this ultimate triathlon is that we can all potentially set ourselves difficult goals and achieve them: the capability to succeed is within everyone.
