Athletics: Ohman is done with the track unless it comes back | Sports
“Coming back from a year without sport has definitely changed my performance. I think I could have done better, especially if I had been consistent in training. As for my goals during the season, of course I tried to get a new PR, but I also tried to break the school record in the shot put. “
With no exercises and fewer meetings that spring, Ohman devoted the extra free time to getting her GPA as high as possible.
“Focusing on school without having a track in my routine definitely felt different in the beginning because I usually went to school right after training,” she said. “But over time, I think it worked for me because I could focus more on school, which resulted in my getting a GPA of 4.0.”
She might not have been as competitive in the classroom if she hadn’t been competitive and disciplined as a thrower.
“Track helped me motivate myself in the classroom and build self-confidence as a person because participating in the track showed me that I will always change for the better and that I will always get through situations, no matter how difficult,” she said said. “When I got on track my first year, didn’t know anything and then got better from year to year, it really showed me what I am capable of.”
