Why should I recruit you ?
I think that I have a lot of potential, first of all because it’s my first season of running and i’ve done pretty good things for the moment, and I am getting better race after race. I think that I have a huge margin of progress.
I have a really great mental, I’ve always liked challenges and suffering during all my trainings to succeed at championships.
I love XC championships and all the distances on the track from 1500m to 10 000m.
Why do you want to compete at US Colleges?
The US scholar systems is way more developed to conciliate sports and studies.
Furthermore, practicing a sport in the US is the best to improve yourself and to get better the fastest you can. I am also looking for team spirit, to be part of a team where your teammates become your closest friends, like a family.
I hope that what I have mentioned plus new training methods will also allow me to improve.
What do you want to achieve in Track/XC?
I really want to train hard to be at the top in XC, and to improve my times on the track.
I am looking forward to competing on US tracks.
College and life goals?
I don’t know yet what I want to study but my choice will be in the sector of science of sports.
I want to discover USA, its culture, and people.
My dream would be, to be a professional athlete.
Anything to add?
I can’t wait to be on the US fields to train HARD. Looking forward to meeting you!! ;)
