For a competitive athlete, a lifetime offers many different sports and activities to approach, understand and conquer.

Some athletes find the sport they love and excel at an early age. Take Tiger Woods for instance. There is video of Tiger crushing the ball off the tee and sinking 12-foot putts at the age of 2. Fourteen majors and $100 million later, we all know how that turned out.

Other athletes stick their toe in several different sporting pools, looking for just the right temperature before they dive in.

For world rowing champion and Nevada City resident, Landon Carter it took 48 years and countless sports before he found his passion for rowing, and he’s been dominant ever since.

Most recently, Carter, 70, earned his second straight World Masters gold in single-scull rowing, winning his age division despite a start that would have doomed most.
