Cross Country & Athletics: Mens Captain

I am a second year Aero-Nerd who has been running for three years. Running is a sport I am incredibly passionate about, whether that be racing on the track or getting out to relax after a stressful day. I first started coming to this club as a fresher last year. Joining ICXC is one of the best decisions I have made at Imperial and each term here I’ve become more and more involved. Now I would love the opportunity to give back to the club by being your men’s captain.
I will be a good captain as I have experience competing at a national level in swimming but also building myself from scratch in running. I have the confidence to lead day to day and bring the HYPE!!! on race day whilst still being a friendly figure you can approach with troubles and for advice.
As your men’s captain I have the following targets:
Increase race performances and improve squad depth by introducing a strength and conditioning guide to help prevent some of the common running injuries that seem to affect everyone regardless of experience or speed.
Create a sense of team spirit where everyone supports each other whether that be at a race, in training or outside slug at 2am.
Make sure running in this club is FUN cause what’s the point if it ain’t???
So, if you want to be a part of a stronger, healthier and happier men’s team vote for me, you know you want to…
