“The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well.” – Pierre de Coubertin
During our time training on this lake in Odessa, FL we were struck with news of Olympic postponement. So much sacrifice endured for a fair chance at Olympic Qualification – now we wait another year.
We banded together as athletes under one Flag to finish the training cycle as a virtue of the Olympic Creed (seen above).
Now we prepare for Tokyo 2021, isolated, as a family of American paddlers all chasing the same goal.
