Biography

Adam Clawson was a slalom canoeist who competed at both the 1992 and 1996 Olympic Games, both times in Canadian slalom singles. Clawson won a silver in that event at the 1991 World Championships, and also won a gold medal that year in the Canadian singles team competition.

Clawson began canoeing when he spent a summer in 1981 at Wesser, North Carolina, where he started paddling at the Nantahala Outdoor Center. He competed through 1996, retiring after a World Cup event in Brazil, and then turned his attention to wood and metal designs, focusing especially on welding many of his metal creations.
