Hello, my name is Christian Burroughs and I've been in USATF track and field since the age of 9. I was 11 years old when I went to my first National Junior Olympics for Mini Javelin, and I've made 5 USATF National Olympic Teams since then, competing in Regulation Javelin, Discus, Shot Put and Hammer. I am a 4 time Junior All American which I've medaled in Discus, Javelin, and Hammer. My best finished was number 1 in the nation for the discus in 2017. In 2021 I was CIF Div 4 Champion in both discus and shot put. I also broke league and school records, which included a 50 year old shot put record.
I hope to compete on a collegiate level and the strong desire of representing USA in the olympic games. My junior year in high school, I plan to compete in the 2024 Olympic Trails.
Some of my strong attributes are; being a team leader, very coachable and likable, a self starter, and I'm the first on the field and the last off the field.
In the classroom, I study very hard and maintain a high GPA which prepares me for the next level of education.
I am open to all options, and I welcome the opportunity to find the right college and program to achieve my life goals in the class and in the ring(s). I hope to continue being a great role model for my peers, and make my parents, brother, and sister proud.
