Glorianne Perrier Interview
Lewiston-born Glorianne Perrier became an Olympic kayaker by accident, and in her first race, her task was simply to stay afloat and finish third in a field of three contestants. She would later go on to be US National K-1 Champion and win a silver medal in the 500m K-2 (doubles) sprint in the 1964 Olympics.
