Why should I recruit you ?
I think you should recruit me because I'm a complete athlete. I can run and adapt to all preparations from 800 metres to half marathon to cross-country thanks to my physique. I train diligently, I never complain about the difficulty of training or the weather conditions and I know how to stay motivated from the beginning to the end of the season. When I have objectives, I give myself 100% to achieve them and optimize my free time for training and recovery as much as possible. I've been training seriously for the past two years, so I plan to make great progress. Last year, I finished 4th in the French Championship Final in the 3000m. So I think it would be wise to recruit me.
Why do you want to compete at US Colleges?
I really want to take a step forward in my young athletic career. I would like to join a good training group to be able to progress and progress together because I am convinced that together we can go further. I really like the American way of training and the fact that sport is taken seriously like studies.
What do you want to achieve in Track/XC?
My biggest upcoming goal would be to participate in the European U20 Championships in 2021. I am going to the United States to improve in all areas (track and cross-country). I don't set myself any time level objectives and limits at the moment. I want to break my track records and go as far as I can in cross-country.
College and life goals?
Whatever I do, I want to best represent the college of which I am a part because it is an opportunity that I am given. In the US, I would like to do a bachelor's degree and then a master's degree but I am not sure of my final choice because there are several areas that interest me (communication, media, journalism, sport marketing).
Anything to add ?
I am really excited about going to the United States and I am really looking forward to being there to work hard for both my studies and sport. I am really passionate about athletics and I have a big page on networks about French athletics with tens of thousands of people following me and I look forward to discovering the American method.
