Today Kelly Slater won his eleventh Association of Professional Surfers World Championship. Having lived in Southern California for 26 years, I recognized the name but I couldn’t have told you what sport he was known for. Now I will remember.
This is a remarkable accomplishment. Even though I don’t follow sports, the fact that Kelly just won his eleventh world championship caught my interest. Even I know that very few athletes, if any, dominate their sport for twenty years.
Way to go, Kelly Slater!
