Team USA

I know this is a fishing blog, but there is a Kenai River connection. Above is Team USA celebrating their 4x5 relay win at the 2019 World Junior Ski Championship in Lahti, Finland. This is the first ever gold medal for Team USA in this event (silver last year).

The fishing connection is this: the young man on the left is my neighbor, Gus Schumacher. Not only a heck of a salmon fisherman (he was backbouncing when most kids used a Snoopy rod), but now he’s a gold medalist.  Way to go Super G! It will be fun to see what comes next.
