Way to go Cheema athletes! We are VERY proud of achievements.  

What is important to remember here is that in many, many cases our athletes were competing in races WELL ABOVE their age category. The dedication and hard work really shone through and bodes well for summer competition.

Nice to see the #blackandgold dominate on the water.
