Commissioner Kristen Rosen Gonzalez presented Miami Beach Rowing Club pararower Helman Roman and coach Stephanie Parrish at the City of Miami Beach Awards and Presentation Ceremony on May 18th, 2016.

The ceremony, which was open to the public, recognized their outstanding accomplishments this year – Parrish coached Roman and rowing partner Lorah Goodkind to success as National Champions in the Trunk & Arms Mixed Double. They went on to win 3rd place at the Olympic qualification regatta in Italy but missed earning a slot to compete at the Paralympics in Rio by just 1.6 seconds. Now back home in California, Goodkind will receive a special mention at the ceremony.
