Alessandro Bovo has been an EF athlete since October of 2018! He initially started training with EF because of his dad, who also trains with the adult group.
He has made great strides in his time training with the youth team. Alessandro initially was interested in biking (which is still his favorite sport), but while training has made huge strides in his running and swimming as well. His run time has improved significantly and coach Michael has helped Alessandro push himself with more runs in his training.
Alessandro is helped out by his teammates with a supportive and healthy competitive atmosphere. He appreciates the cheers of his teammates especially! Accomplishing small goals in his training has helped give him confidence and setting and achieving progressively bigger goals.
Even though he was surprised by how painful running was when training, Alessandro has done a fantastic job improving and pushing through the pain. His advice to beginners goes right along with this spirit: “Don’t doubt your abilities and believe in yourself.” Alessandro recently had an awesome result at Smithfield, taking 6th in his AG with solid swim, bike, and run legs!
We can’t wait to see Alessandro does next with hard work and determination!
