White water rafting with Carl Lewis:
Carl was a very nice man but I found a video of him that makes me laugh even after watching it 5 times.  It got better each time. Enjoy!

We went white water river rafting in Costa Rica and when the group of the other boat arrived I realized I had something in common with him.  I informed Carl that we were both Olympians and Gold Medallists. We shared a few stories and then we headed for the rapids. We had a fun trip down the Savegre River and stopped at a huge waterfall for a few photos and some snacks.
