Athlete of the Day: Austin Pulkowski

It’s time to celebrate our Athlete of The Day!

 

Austin Pulkowski, son of Sports Mama, Tiffany Pulkowski, is our Athlete of the Day.

 

 

Tell us about Austins’ achievement: 

Austin has Autism and sensory struggles have been a struggle for him his entire life. He joined the Cross Country team this year and has surprised us all with how well he is doing. At the start of a recent rainy meet,  I was worried….it had been pouring all morning and they had to run in the downpour…if you’ve seen a cross-country uniform, they don’t cover much so he was going to feel it all. No problems! Finished 9th with a PR and helped his team to a first-place finish! (Then put on his rain gear before the cooldown ?).

 

 

Tell us about a character trait Austin has that you just adore:

Determination. Once he has decided something, it WILL happen.

 

 

Tell us one thing you want your athlete to know:

That his dad, brother, and I are proud of him every day, not just when he runs well.

 

Congratulations, Austin!
