Congrats to our very own King County Parks employee, Jordin Andrade, for a successful run (literally) in Rio!


Jordin Andrade, an employee from the Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatic Center, recently competed at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Since January, he has worked as a control room technician, and thanks to his flexible schedule, was able to balance training for the Olympics and working. Even though he works at the WKCAC (a hub for Olympic swimmers), he actually ran in the Men’s 400m hurdles, representing Cape Verde. Andrade made it to the semifinals in the Men’s 400 meter hurdles and placed 16th. He is the first Cape Verdean ever to run in an Olympic semifinal. Congrats Jordin!
