Germany’s Ricarda Funk upset world #1 kayaker Jessica Fox of Australia to secure a gold medal in the women’s kayak slalom competition. Fox’s mistakes and Funk’s nearly flawless run pushed her to gold medal glory.
Not sure about you, but I always enjoy watching the kayaking events at the Olympics. The way they move their kayaks through the water is an art form and I always find myself picking my jaw off the floor when I watch.
On a personal note… My last kayaking trip ended with me complaining for two whole days about how much my back hurt after only being on the water for an hour. Times like that are a painful reminder that I’m already washed up in my mid-20s.
Hey, at least I got this whole blogging thing figured out, right? I mean you guys and gals keep clicking and the boss man keeps paying me… I must be doing something right!
