After Lucas joined his track team about one year ago, he made lots of progress very quickly. Lucas improved his 200m PB with over a second and also cut down his 100m PB from 11,96s to 11,18s. With only one year of training under his belt he already competed at Nationals running both the 100m and 200m.
Lucas’ major strengths are his explosiveness and passion for the sport. He isn’t only passionate about track, because he used to be like that playing soccer as well. This background of playing a team sport make Lucas a big team player and he likes a running relays a lot too. An area of improvement for him is to take better care of himself outside practice.
