More on Steven Blake Haxton

Blake picked up outrigger canoeing as an adult and USA Canoe & Kayak has been a huge help. I keep learning more about paracanoe and sprint in general and its been a lot of fun.

I have been on the U.S. Para rowing team since 2014, and will compete in both events in Tokyo.
