I chose the salmon as I believe it is one of the strongest swimmers in the ocean and rivers. Like surfers, salmon have to swim against the current or waves in order to reach achievement. The salmon swims thousands of miles into the ocean - surviving predators and then swims thousands of miles back to the river and against the current of the river to its birthplace to rejuvenate the cycle of life.
