In my own words:
I’m a guy who got fed up with “almost got there”. Growing up, I was late to every sport I tried. I still remember coaches yelling at me for not understanding the offside rule during my first year of minor hockey. I remember my university football coaches yelling instructions while my mind was spinning as a freshman walk-on who’d never played organized football. When I decided rowing would be my next sport at age 23, I was determined to go all the way – I would become an Olympian. The 4 Year Olympian is that story. I hope you enjoy it!
