There are few Kenai Peninsula athletes who can say they have had a shot at the Olympic games.
Soldotna is about to add one to the list.
Paige Blackburn, a graduate of Soldotna High School, is aiming to qualify for the London Olympics today in Eugene, Ore., in the javelin throw.
Even if she doesn’t make it, she still plans on representing the United States at the North America, Central America and Caribbean (NACAC) Under-23 Championships in Guanajuato, Mexico.
