Lakeside Graduate Headed to London Olympics
Tim Hornsby, a 2004 graduate, will compete in the sprint kayak event. It's his first competition in the Olympics.
Some pretty awesome news out of Lakeside High School this week: Tim Hornsby, a 2004 graduate, is headed to London for this summer's Olympic Games.
From the PTSA's summer update emailed to members:
Tim Hornsby of Atlanta (Lakeside Class of 2004) will represent the United States in the sprint kayak at the London Olympics after beating teammate Ryan Dolan on Sunday at a World Cup event. Hornsby finished fifth in the "B" final of the 200 meters in Duisburg, Germany. He was 0.248 seconds ahead of Dolan, who was eighth.
Hornsby will be competing at his first Olympics. He says going to the Olympics "has been a dream forever. It's amazing that it's actually happening. I'm tripping out." The 200 is making its debut at the Summer Games this year.
Good luck Tim!!
I've attached a video of Tim, and it looks like a feature he may have done on himself or someone did for him. He's living out in San Diego, CA, near an Olympic training facility. If you click open the video on YouTube and click on his channel, you can find other videos of him as well.
