Kaley Martin would be happy to be considered a pioneer with her pursuits of racing in the canoe when women are eligible to compete for the first time at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo. Currently, the active member of the Lanier Canoe and Kayak Club in Gainesville is on track to make that dream a reality as the fastest C1 (one-person flatwater canoe) athlete in the US. The Lanier Canoe and Kayak Club member is excited because she has a real chance of making a run at the Olympics. That’s quite a compliment to her ability to move fast on top of the water.
