Sport Specific Information

When and where did you begin this sport?
Her parents signed her up to kayaking lessons at age seven.
Why this sport?
"Both my brother and I were introduced to canoeing by our father, who would sit us in his lap and take us up and down the river Soca. My older brother started properly training in canoeing first and, as a younger sister, I did whatever he did, so I decided to take up canoeing as well."
