Watch out for this 17-year-old paddling phenom from Suamico, Wisconsin. She may just be the next gold medal winner at the 2008 Olympics!
Gwen Greeley first started kayaking at age 10 when her family moved to a house right by the water. Her father wanted to try a sport that the whole family could enjoy, so he bought kayaks and signed them up for classes at their local YMCA. Gwen says, "At first I was scared that the boat might flip over and throw me into the water, but really there wasn't anything scary about it."
