The Hoeschler siblings have been log rolling since shortly after they were able to walk. Will, 23, Abby, 27, and Lizzie, 31, learned the sport from their mother, a seven-time world champion, and refined their craft while practicing in a lagoon along the Mississippi River.
Today, Abby and Lizzie often meet in national competitions, and between the two sisters they have five world championships in log rolling and boom running. Abby also runs Key Log Rolling, a Minneapolis-based company that sells synthetic logs and educates young rollers.
The family is hosting the 4th Key Log Rolling Invitational, a log rolling tournament on Lake Calhoun during the Minneapolis Aquatennial on July 19-20, 2014. The following weekend, Abby and Lizzie will be competing in the Lumberjack World Championships in Hayward, Wisc.
