Who is Isaac Levinson?Isaac Levinson is then allow me to introduce you. This past November Isaac claimed the gold medal in short boat and silver medal in longboat classes of the prestigious Green River Race. Isaac has also made his presence known in the extreme world with appearances in top international videos like Demshitz and the Tribe “Line of the Year” nomination. Most recently he has been training to reach the podium at the Teva Mountain Games and for an USA C-2 Olympic seat with partner Ben Fraker. Liquid Logic quickly noted Isaac’s extreme race skills and grabbed the top-contender athlete to join their winning string of racers. And I personally am proud to mention that Isaac formerly was a student of mine at Huge Experiences’ New River Academy. CKS PaddleFest I ran into Isaac who'd came to Colorado with goals of reaching the podium for the Teva Mountain Games. Quickly, the question came to mind, “What does it take to be one of the world’s best extreme racers?” You'd think it takes a big set of nads and a certain level of focus that transfers into on-extreme water confidence. Let's examine.
USA Olympic Team… Can You Do It?
Green River Race Short Boat Gold and Long Boat SilverNorth Carolina’s Green River Race has proven to be a competitive extreme event with champions such as Mike Dawson, Andrew Holcombe, Pat Keller, and Tommy Hillieke.
If you reach the podium at the Green then you’ve officially received your lifetime “Badass Card.”
Isaac states, “Of course, my goal and training were to win gold knowing that the Green Race is one of the hardest and most competitive on the extreme circuit. It’s hard to throw down a flawless run and that’s what it takes. I was happy and if anyone else was going to win then it should be Mike Dawson (New Zealand). I believe Mike winning further legitimized the race on an international level. Next week I’d like to reach the podium at Vail (Teva Mountain Games)."
