Take It From Mo Beck


12 votes

Maureen (Mo) has always been stubborn. Whether it was playing goalie on her soccer team or taking up rock climbing, Mo grew up throwing herself into activities that might seem difficult for someone born without her left hand. Because of her determination, Mo has won the IFSC World Paraclimbing Championships three times – in 2017, 2016 and 2014 – and more than a half-dozen national-level climbing competitions.

In this episode of Take It From Me, Allen, the nutrition scientist and small business owner you met in episode five, interviews Mo about why she chose rock climbing, her relationship with the adaptive athletic community, and why she’s not willing to take no for an answer.
