    A Little on Injured Veteran PWC Racer Anthony Radetic



    [Editor's note: This letter came across our desk at the same time PWCOffshore's Mark Gerner had it published across his website's various social media outlets. Nevertheless, I felt it was an invaluable piece worthy of publication here at The Watercraft Journal. Even though I don't regard The Journal as a "racing magazine" - despite all of the racing coverage we've published these last few days - I am forever impressed with the mettle of character of persons that I encounter at racing events. -Kevin]

    I am not inspired easily, Anthony Radetic inspires me. Many people crumble when presented with adversity or true challenges; they find a way out, convince themselves that it canít be done, take the path of least resistance, try to change the rules or find excuses. Not Anthony Radetic. Anthony is a former Army Blackhawk pilot and injured veteran, he is a spinal cord paraplegic and spends some time in a wheelchair. That is, when heís not swimming, on a jet ski, competing in competitive hand cycling events, competitive and professional skiing at the international level which includes backflips and other impressive feats of athleticism and all other sports that he can compete in.

    I've gotta say, Anthony is a heck of an athlete. The water was pretty ugly out there and Anthony charged through some pretty rough stuff on a very unfriendly offshore ski.
