I will miss the time on and off the track that I have spent with my teammates. I will miss the intensity of being in competition.

4. Who is your favorite athlete?
My favorite athletes are Michael Johnson and Felix Sanchez because they are relatively humble and they are very hard workers who have achieved greatness.

5. If you could win any event in the Olympics, what would it be and why?
If I could win any Olympic event, it would be the 400-meter hurdles or the 400-meter dash. They are the events I compete in now and I know how hard they are to prepare for, especially the hurdles.
