Biography

Scott Strausbaugh and his partner, [Joe Jacobi], were US Champions in whitewater canoe doubles from 1988-92 and were expected to contend for a medal in that event at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics. The pair had had three World Cup podium finishes in 1990-91, with a silver and two bronzes, but they were not gold medal favorites. That role went to several European pairs, mainly the 1991 World Champions from France, [Franck Adisson] and [Wilfrid Forgues]. However, the Europeans pairs struggled in the first round and Strausbaugh and Jacobi took the lead and held on to win the gold medal. Strausbaugh and Jacobi trained at the Nantahala Whitewater Center in Bryson City, North Carolina.
