Nevin Harrison canoe sprint competitor for Team USA

GAINESVILLE, Ga. (July 7, 2021) – The summer is heating up and so is the excitement for the Summer Olympics in Tokyo. On Friday, July 16, 2021 from 4:45 to 6:15 p.m., visit Lake Lanier Olympic Park to support two Team USA Olympians during their time trials: Nevin Harrison for the Canoe Sprint and Alex Lee for the Kayak Sprint. Lanier Canoe and Kayak Club athletes will also be training for the Nationals during that time.

Spectators are welcome. Visitors may arrive by car and cheer them on from the plaza steps or boaters will be able to anchor parallel to the shore.

And when you finished, stick around and enjoy the Beach Bash, a free, beach-themed, family-friendly event that includes food trucks, live music and beach themed contests. Beach Bash will be open from 5 to 10 p.m. with live music beginning at 7 p.m.
