Riding the Lightning: Superhero Paddler Adriene Levknecht

Much like Clark Kent, Adriene Levknecht steps away from work and into a phone booth (or more commonly her Subaru CrossTrek), and emerges a whitewater superhero. At the young age of 25, Levknecht has already achieved a Bronze Medal in the World Freestyle Championships, won the elite Green River Narrows Race five times straight, dominated the Teva Mountain Games creek race, and run top tier rivers around the world.
