Interview

Why should I recruit you ?

  I’m really involved in athletics since my young age, I run since I am 7, and in order to be more competitive I would like to train with new partners, with a new coach and with a new mentality in training.  Currently I run 5/6 times a week with a weekly mileage at around 50 miles. My main strength is my mental during tough workouts and races, I never give up when confronted with adversity.

 

Why do you want to compete at US Colleges?

 

  U.S. colleges are the best places to mix the studies and a high level of sport training, also the density of good runners is well higher in the U.S. colleges than in French clubs and I think this is important for improving my PR. I am from a little club where I principally train alone with the supervision of my coach so I think that being in a team with other runners could be a good experience and can only make me better.

What do you want to achieve in Track/XC?

  My PRs on the track for 800m and 1500m are 1’58’’ and 4’05’’. This coming year I hope to improve my self, I would like to run around 1’55’’ for the 800m and around 3’55’’ for 1500. XC is not where I am the best, even if I like to run them and this is why I want to train hard to be better like for track by coming in a U.S. college.

 

College and life goals?

  I am only 17 so my future is a little trouble for me, but the fields that interest me are mainly sciences, sports and business.

Anything to add?

  What I love in athletics is everything related to running; from the track, XC, road to trail running. For example I recently ran a 10k trail in Andorra with 750md+ and placed second in 58min. To finish I’m really motivated to go in the USA.
