Vahl wins gold at the National Games

See Vahl on his way to gold medals at the National Games representing Kentucky  in the backstroke and relay, and silver in the freestyle. He had many aunties and uncles supporting him. We may have been the largest family group there with relatives from NY and NJ, Suriname, Texas, Virginia, New Orleans, Guyana coming for the event. We turned it into a great family reunion.
