PERSONAL: Aaron GADON (USA) (terp.umd, 25 Jul 2017)


Reason: Inspired to aim for Olympics after seeing Usain BOLT (JAM) at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. She had just started running track, but thought, “This could be me one day.â€? (cathstan.org, 28 Jul 2016)
Influence: Usain Bolt (JAM). “This man from an island in the Caribbean, Jamaica, grew up very humbly, but he had a gift. He held to his hard work and all that dedication, and you saw the sacrifice. I think that is what drew me to it all.â€? (cathstan.org, 28 Jul, 2016)
