Nikolas came home with the gold for race walking! He also received All-American status for both race walking and the triathlon. Congratulations, Nikolas!
At the USATF National Championships in St. Louis yesterday, Nikolas was so lucky to meet Jackie Joyner-Kersee! She has 6 Olympic Medals including 3 gold and is considered the greatest female athlete of the 20th century. They discussed how they are both helping American children in need!
Today Nikolas is race walking in the USATF Youth Outdoor National Championships. Can you guess where he is? Good luck, Nikolas!
We hope you've been having a great summer so far! Even though it's been very warm out lately, winter will be here before we know it. And then it will be freezing! Be proactive and donate today to keep a child warm. Don't these little girls look so happy in their new coats?
Happy belated National Running day, everyone! Runner's day is celebrated annually on the first Wednesday of June, but Nikolas couldn't post because he was too busy running. :)
"Doing something I love and helping children at the same time—what could be better?"
Nikolas hit his first HOME RUN EVER at his baseball game this weekend!!! AND he placed 2nd in his age group at the Rustin 5k; he took it easy in the 90 degree heat. Pictured here is his dog, Cosmo, wearing his metal! :) Thanks, Rustin friends, for your friendly welcome and enthusiastic support!
Hey! I'm Thea, Nikolas's older sister! I'll be taking care of his blog.
