Our very own Dick Johnson and his wife Lawana will be traveling the USA over the next few weeks where Dick will compete in some elite events.
First off, they will travel to Minneapolis for the National Senior Olympic Games.
The NSG Association exists today as a non-profit organization dedicated to motivating active adults to lead a healthy lifestyle through the senior games movement.
The Games, a 19-sport, biennial competition for men and women 50 and over, is the largest multi-sport event in the world for seniors.
Dick qualified in three sports, but he will only be competing in pickleball at the NSGs.
From Minneapolis, they will be traveling to the State Games of America in Nebraska.
During the ten-day event, over 14,000 athletes of all ages will compete in over 67 sports!
The athletes at the SGoA are all ages and will participate in the Opening Ceremonies. Dick will march in the ceremony as Idaho’s flag bearer.
Good luck at the games, Dick!
