Favorite Sports Memory:
When I was on the podium at the 2008 Olympic Trials and it was announced that I was going to Beijing!
It’s hard to beat a person who never gives up
– Babe Ruth
CAN Fund Testimonial:
The money I receive from the CAN Fund will help me cover costs for flights over to meets in Europe, where most of my competition is! It will also help to cover the cost of track club fees (paying coach, equipment use-weight rooms, etc.)
10th in the 200m at the 2008 Beijing Paralympic Games
My hobbies are water skiing, canoe trips, hanging out with friends and family and taking my dog Duke for runs! I sing… people just have to catch me in the act! I broke my arm reading in grade 6.
