Seems Goose has a new avenue or field to look at. Since Perez left the USA curling team as skip he has had his sights set on staying involved! Well; rowing and skiing seem to be a great fit. Read the following article segment to find out more.
"Other members of the U.S. team include Ryan Barnett of Atlanta, a former pro bike racer who was hit by a car while cycling; Augusto Perez of East Syracuse, N.Y., a three-time cancer survivor and former member of the U.S. wheelchair curling team; and Dan Cnossen, 31, a former Navy SEAL who lost both legs in 2009 after stepping on an explosive device in Afghanistan.
The youngest member of the team is Christina Kouros, 16, from Cape Elizabeth, Maine, who might be the only high school sit skier in the country.
Competition continues today at Theodore Wirth Park with middle-distance races starting at 10 a.m.
The race is being held in conjunction with the City of Lakes Nordic Ski Foundation, which also is holding the City of Lakes Loppet cross country skiing events this weekend at Theodore Wirth Park. "
