Mikhail Vinkel CarvalhoFeatured
I am a 100m and 200m sprint athlete with many gold medals under my belt. I have been running and competing from the age of 6 years old. As I plan to continue improving my track times, I know that an opportunity to leave my small island of Barbados, that I live on, will greatly assist me in achieving this goal. I know that the United States has a athletic program of a high standard and I want to perfect my craft in track and field and ultimately go to the Olympics to represent my country. I also know educating myself beyond a secondary level of education and onto a tertiary level of education is of high importance as it will aid me in achieving my goal of financial freedom. As a result, I want to use my talent and my burning desire for Track and field to help me afford the best education that I could possibly attain.

Additional sporting info
I have lived a lifestyle dedicated to track and field. This meaning I consumed mainly food of quality, no illegal substance and healthily eating habits for the past 4 years. This has allowed me to continue to improve on my times.
To the end of 2019 I started to work out in the gym. This was after my 17th birthday which was in June 2019. I have gained muscle and strength on my 6’3” frame with the addition of becoming more powerful which will contribute to my increase times as I run.
