2008 Beijing Olympic Gold Medalist to Visit Our Athletes

The University of Alberta Rowing Team, Jasper Place High School and the Edmonton Rowing Club welcome 2008 Olympic gold medalist, Adam Kreek.

Adam rowed in the men’s eight that captured not only gold, but also the heart of Canadians everywhere. Following their formidable racing, the crew moved us with their displays of emotion while proudly singing the National Anthem.
We are grateful to him for taking the time out of his busy schedule, while promoting youth rowing in partnership with Rowing Canada Aviron and iRow, to hang out with the UART, it’s Learn to Row athletes and share his experiences over a drink.
Come join us at the RATT (Room At The Top, in the Student’s Union Building) on Tuesday, September 20th at 8pm to meet Adam in person!
