Thompson said Adam was also outstanding in the 800 and 1,600-meter runs in track and field with a best of 2:04.26 in the 800 and 5:08.25 in the 1,600 meters. His best in the 3,200-meter run was 12:47.51.

Adam is an incredibly hard worker, Thompson said.

“He is a very talented artist and I think he may be considering an engineering career,” she added. “No matter what he decides to do he will give a great effort. He takes the time to be successful at whatever he does.”

Again, congrats to Adam on his BJ's Printables Male Athlete of the Month honor.
