My name is Edoardo Corti and I am an Italian hurdler (110 and 60 hs) born on 09/30/2003 in Milan.
I entered the world of track&field at the age of 7 y.o. and have never stopped since, thanks to the strong passion I have developed over the years.
I am passionate about my sport in all its forms, but I also love traveling, discovering different cultures and ways of life, as well as nature and art.

What makes you different?
Despite the various difficulties I faced, I never gave up, conscious of my abilities, but now I think it is time to take a step forward and move to a higher level.
I am very determined to achieve my goals, and I am sure that with guidance and a calm environment I would be able to reach my maximum athletic potential.
Why do you want to compete in college?
During my seasons as an athlete I have always tried to make the most of my possibilities to achieve my goals, almost always succeeding. All this despite various difficulties, such as for example the distance of my club's field from my home (31 miles one way and 31 miles back) and study commitments that still force me to train a maximum of three times a week.
For this reasons, after finishing high school, my dream has always been to study and compete for a college in the USA, so that I could combine study and sport, something that here in Italy, for many problems, is not possible fo me.
To express my potential in the sport that I love, become more self-sufficient, increase my cultural background, have a high-level education, and discover a world that I always dreamed of since I was a child.
