Former Classmate/Teammate, Adler Volmar, Beijing Bound!

Adler Volmar is representing the United States this week at the Beijing's Olympic Games in Judo. He is the top ranked US athlete in his category. Adler was born in the US but grew up in Haiti. He represented Haiti in the 1996 Olympic Games. Adler and I went to school together in Haiti and are great friends. We were classmates for the last four years of secondary school. The coolest thing is, we were also teammates. Adler and I attended the same dojo, and practiced together. I stopped practicing Judo after I left Haiti to go to Jamaica for my undergraduate studies.
