My name is Sage Donnelly I have been paddling for 16 years. I have been a kayaker since I was little. When my parents put me in the front of a two person Topo Duo when I was two and we would paddle class two and three rivers. Then when I was five I started to run rivers in my own boat. I started competing in freestyle when I was seven and creek racing when I was nine. After that, I decided to set my sites on making team USA in slalom and freestyle. I’ve spent the last six years racing slalom full time and last year when covid hit I decided to come back to my roots to creek full time.
