Student runner races to Nationals in India

When David M. entered Christel House India – Bangalore he already had a passion: running. He started running when he was just 3 years old, with a dream of achieving big things someday. David is now in Grade 9 and seeing the results of his hard work. In November he finished second in Karnataka’s state-level track meet in the 200-meter dash, qualifying for the national competition. “Reaching the State Level Meet, I was overwhelmed with a mix of emotions,” David shared. “I was scared and nervous but also happy and accomplished.” David trains two hours every day before school and for five hours on Saturday and Sunday. The dedication and strength of character that Christel House teaches contributed to David’s outstanding third place finish at the national track meet in December. “I’m very proud of David’s performance,” says Coach James R. “He has exceeded expectations!” David isn’t stopping now – he plans to break his own records. “I am very grateful,” David says. “It is because of the support of my principal, coach and teachers at Christel House that I am able to accomplish my goals.”
