Casey Eichfeld dishes on canoeing, Rio Games

Olympic canoeist Casey Eichfeld talks to USA TODAY Sports’ Roxanna Scott about training for Rio after some great results in 2015. Eichfeld was fourth at last year’s world championships, which put him in a strong position to make the U.S. Olympic team. The 26-year-old got his start in the sport at age 2 when his parents paddled him around in a canoe and he has since traveled the world racing on whitewater. He discusses his biggest competition at the Rio Games, how dance has helped him in his sport and what it’s like to race in less than ideal conditions.
