Canoe sprint world champion Nevin Harrison, 19, of Seattle, poses for a portrait before she trains near Lake Lanier Olympic Park on Thursday, July 1, 2021, in Gainesville, Ga. Harrison won the world championship in the women’s sprint canoe 200 meters as a 17-year-old in 2019. Now she’ll try to duplicate that at the Olympics in Tokyo where the race will be a new event in a bid for gender equity. (AP Photo/Brynn Anderson) GABA102 GABA102
