Kiko Summary

Kiko: How to break the Atlantic rowing record after brain surgery by Kiko Matthews

In February 2018, Kiko Matthews set out to row solo and unsupported, 3000 miles across the Atlantic. She not only added her name to the handful of women who had successfully made the crossing solo, but did so in a world record time of 49 days, 10 hours and 13 minutes - more than five days less than the previous record. She had never rowed before deciding on this challenge. But following brain surgery after being diagnosed with a rare life-threatening condition, she set herself goals that pushed her mental and physical boundaries to the limit. In her book she vividly describes her epic voyage and what drove her to attempt it.

About Kiko Matthews

Seven years before Kiko Matthews broke the world record for the fastest woman to row across the Atlantic in March 2018, she had a tumour removed from her brain at King's College Hospital in London after being diagnosed with Cushing's Disease. When the tumour returned in 2017, a second operation followed, and Kiko set herself the challenge of raising GBP100,000 for King's College Hospital by rowing the Atlantic solo. Born into an unconventional Herefordshire family, she graduated with a degree in molecular biology before embarking on a career teaching science in London. Later, she began teaching stand-up paddle boarding on the Thames until, that is, she set out alone to row across the Atlantic at the age of 36.
