What do you recommend to track and field athletes to achieve their best in the sport and when looking for a college?
Go to a school that you actually love (there's not that much money in track) and study/major in something you love. Going pro doesn't promise much money either). Do it because you love it. People are good at what they have to do - they are great at what they love to do.
