The Athletics Project - Our Story

Kai Pang is one of our younger athletes who showed so much character at out photo shoot. He and his parents were so happy and appreciative to be a part of the shoot. At the photo shoot in May at Beazley Field it was really cold and of course the shoot was taking some time to get done. While the older athletes and coaches although in good spirits were trying to find ways to stay warm and asking how long it would take. Kai and the younger athletes solved the dilemma . They took full advantage of being at the track and never stopped running, jumping or throwing the entire time they were there. They had so much fun. Here is what Kai had to say.

ANS: Is there a coach or athlete that you look up to as a role model and why?
