Kayaker Caroline Queen grew up paddling the streams of Montgomery County. She first picked up an oar at Valley Mill Camp in Darnestown at age 9, and hasn’t put it down in the 11 years since. Now, at 20, she’s the sole American woman representing the US at the London Games as a slalom kayaker.
Caroline almost made the Beijing team in 2008, at the age of 16, and this year, she just beat out another Marylander for the Olympic spot: Ashley Nee, also from Montgomery County, is another top female American kayaker.
Caroline is a rising junior at Davidson College in North Carolina, and she's been blogging about her Olympic experience for the Huffington Post. Here, she talks with Sheilah about preparing for the Games.
You can see some video of Caroline kayaking below. And if you want to watch her competing: the heats for the women’s kayaking events begin next Monday, July 30th. You can see the full Olympic schedule here.
