MEGAN BLUNK – UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS
Megan Blunk is a Warrior.
She battles and defeats intense adversity in her life everyday. She is a humble athlete who was born with a tenacious will that she cultivates into victory in both sport and in life.
Megan is now a sophmore and plays point-guard for the University of Illinois’s Wheelchair Basketball team.
In addition to basketball, last summer Megan decided to learn to train and race for the para-kayak / para-canoe division of the Gig Harbor Kayak & Canoe Team.
In just two short months, she competed and won a National Championship in the grueling 3000m race.
Megan led a come-from-behind win that was a huge upset. In the pics you can see her dad beaming with pride as the
National Champ had to walk over and see for himself what kind of motor was in the boat that beat him!
Megan is truly one of a kind who can always call our gym home.
