Kayaking experts to provide clinic for enthusiasts

By John Garces/sports editor

Anyone interested in the sport of kayaking may learn about the activity from an Olympic gold medalist.

Joe Jacobi, gold medalist in the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona, will conduct a paddling clinic in the NE HPE pool 7-9 p.m. tonight.

Jacobi, America’s first-ever gold medal winner in whitewater slalom, also competed in the 2004 Games in Athens.

He will be joined by Ben Kvanli, a member of the 1996 whitewater slalom team, who is a contender for this year’s squad.

The kayaking demonstration is free.

Local kayaking instructors will be at the event to help small groups learn about the activity.

For information, call the HPE department at 817-515-6956.
