Michael’s Olympic Journey

When Michael started running track, it was just a way to hang out and compete with his friends. He’ll even admit he wasn’t the fastest on the team when he started. He even thought about quitting before his freshman year, until his friend convinced him to keep on going.  Little did Michael know, his success that season would ignite his desire to compete on the world stage.

Knowing all the potential I have in the sport makes me excited to be the best athlete I can be.

If there is one word to describe Michael’s journey, it would be “patience.” Although he’s had some amazing moments in his young career, Michael knows inspirational or exciting moments can’t be forced. Those moments are a product of countless days, months and years of hard work and dedication to the sport. As a sprinter, Michael trains over 300 days a year for a race that lasts mere seconds. And when it’s over, the highs are high and the lows are low. But Michael makes every effort he can to be mentally prepared. For Michael, seeing his family and friends in the stands reminds him of all the progress he’s made from the day his dad introduced him to the track in 2009.
