The Ultimate Optimism = Kai Green.
Coming from a multiracial background, “adapt and adept” came to me naturally. I accept new challenges and even look forward to them.
My friends would describe me as an easy going guy. My coaches and teammates would say I have an optimistic mindset and am supportive.
I am very fortunate to say that I have been injury free in almost 10 years of my swimming career.
I started swimming at the age of 8 after being inspired by Michael Phelps’ achievement at the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics. From that point on, I have worked to win in my own races. I was the youngest at the time to become a national team member to my club, and a varsity member (State finalist) to my high school team since freshman year.
This year (February 2018), I was a member of 200 free relay team for my high school that achieved an All American Consideration (1:26.03). Also, I was a VA State Championship (Class 6) finalist in 50 free (ranked #3 21.52) and 100 Breast (#9 58.45).
The reason why I want to continue swimming is because it drives my competitive nature and encourages me to strive for the best. I am eager to learn more about racing strategies and swimming techniques.

My goal is to find a college team that will allow me to further grow as a person and an athlete.
I am looking forward to making a positive contribution to my college team.
