Editors Note: Tom got some fine pictures out at the Whitewater Park, but I am still not sure what the best way to handle photos like this is. And no, your eyes do not deceive you, I have changed this already. I have decided the best way is to post one or two larger photos and folks who want to see more can head over to the photoblog, it is only one click away! As always, you can drop a comment in the box if you have another idea.
Selections for the US National Junior Canoe and Kayak teams were held this weekend at the Whitewater Park. If you couldn’t make it, here are a few shots of these world class athletes in action. Fourteen, fifteen year old kids traveling the country and perhaps the world, training for a sport that may bring glory, but not a lot of money. These are some very dedicated kids (and parents!) Next time they come to town, take a few minutes, head downtown and cheer them on!
