Even though she's a long time competitive paddler, Kamini Jain doesn't
consider herself a veteran among the women's Olympic K-4 500 crew
"I don't consider myself a veteran since these are my first Olympics," said
Jain, a paddler since age 15. "But I'm very optimistic about this crew. I
really like it. The dynamics are good both emotionally and technically."
Jain moved to Canada from Tripoli at age four. Her mother is British and
her father, originally from India, worked in the oil business.
