Veteran team member Mr. Erik Edwards made the Jr National Sprint Kayak team on Friday. Tryouts were held at Lake Placid, New York. Erik is one of seven members selected. He will spend the summer training at the Olympic Training Center and traveling with the Jr National team to races, potentially to Jr Worlds in Chekislovakia.
Mr. Edwards has been kayaking for six years and has made significant progress in the last two years. Since last years nationals he has been training mostly on his own in Pittsburgh, he trained for some time with the DC team and at the Olympic Center in San Diego.
Erik helped the Jr Team win the D final at the Pittsburgh Dragon Boat Races June 16.
Go Mr E, Mama Edwards must be proud.
