With two much larger brothers growing up, I scampered away from fights. I never could get up on water skis. We have a pool in my backyard and a cabin up north where swimming is recreational and relaxing. I have never won a gold medal. Athletes and Maple Grove area residents Amanda Bluford, Jenny Kaldor and Madison Rundell earned the latter in taekwondo, water skiing and swimming last year.
After chatting with the three young athletes, I learned that age is just a number. All three experienced incredible achievements last year. As a 22-year-old, all are also younger than I am.
To learn more about these three amazing athletes' successes, be sure to peek into the February issue of Maple Grove Magazine.
