Paddling while Speaking

Here you can watch me teaching the spectators at the Athens Olympics. This takes place just prior to the forerunners, and is part of pre-event training of the spectators. I found it to be quite a challenge to run the Olympic course (not to mention the gates) while trying to explain what was going on. The added complication was waiting for the greek translation while setting up in the eddies for the next moves.
