Adam Von Koeverden: Canook Kayaker

Adam Von Koeverden is representing Canada in the Kayak.  He is a pretty cool guy.
.
Eddie and I saw him in Beijing, where he won the Silver in 500 M Kayak (flat).
.
He won a Gold and Bronze in 2004.
.
He is still going - and I am rooting for him in London.  He's a nice little Canadian (aren't they all nice).  And cute to boot!  In Beijing, he carried the flag during the march of nations.

This is his Roots ad.
.
He's getting old (for an Olympic Athlete) and still going.
