Three of the Lanier Canoe & Kayak Club's most promising athletes recently took a big jump in their pursuit of eventually taking part in the Olympics. 

From Sept. 8-11, North Hall High's Benji Ingram and Jasper Wooters, both kayakers, were joined with their club member Kendal Grattan, a kayaker who attends North Forsyth High, at the Olympic Hopes Regatta in Bratislava, Slovakia. 

The Olympic Hopes is for athletes 15-17 who were ready to test their talent against the world's best in that age group. 

All three have a long-range goal of making it to the Paris Summer Games in 2024.
