Why should I recruit you ?
I think I could fit pretty well in the sport philosophy of your Team and your college. I really love training, and I think I could bring a lot to the group dynamic of your team. I am a very motivated person, I think I took enough experience through all my training years in France to know my body and how to be performant. I would love to bring my talent and my motivation to your team because I have still a lot to learn and I am sure that you could help me get to the next level.
Why do you want to compete at US Colleges?
I think that US colleges have the best conditions to allow athletes to reach their greatest goals, in both projects, studies and sport. In addition, I think the NCAA is by far the greatest concentration of talent in sports, and be part of these competitions is a dream and a real life goal.
What do you want to achieve in Track/XC?
I want to be an Olympian, represent my country in the best international competitions, and be able to reach the best results in these competitions. I see decathlon as a way to be a better version of myself, and the perfect sport to challenge yourself.
College and life goals?
I never considered to do sport without continuing studies, for me it is essential to get a balanced life, and to be performant in both part of my life, sport and studies. That is why my goal is to get this MBA, and to ensure my post career. I would like to work in financial management, and I am sure that this education could teach me in the best way to reach this goal.
