Out of nowhere, Kenny Wallace claimed a Gold and Silver medal in the K1 at the Olympics and was also awarded the OAM on Australia Day.

He’s also been doing the PR circuit, his knock about laid back unaffected nature has made him a favorite on the footy show.

Ken was one of the first blokes I met at high school, his discipline and commitment was evident back then when he was training multiple times per day when he was in year 8.

His strength and conditioning coach from the Australian Institute of Sport, Glen Workman was one of my mentors when I first started out in the industry.

Its great to see them both achieve their goals of Gold in Beijing!
