USACK Nationals

Nathan and I spent the better part of Wednesday through Saturday up at Lake Lanier, where Nathan competed in the USA Canoe & Kayak Sprint Championships at the Lake Lanier Olympic Venue.
I am proud to report that Nathan's 4-man team took the gold in the K-4 Bantam event on Thursday.

Nathan's team is on the right. It looked like they would win easily.

But then the second boat started gaining ground.

It got closer.

And closer.

The race was a nail-biter, for sure! But, in the end, Nathan's team was victorious. Here they are at the awards banquet after receiving their gold medals.

And here is Nathan wearing his gold medal and a big smile.

Nathan's name even made it into the newspaper. Here is a link to the article.

Way to go, Nathan! Way to go, Lanier Canoe and Kayak Club!

Way to go, Nate! Pam, with your pics accompanying the post almost made me feel I was there cheering him on.
