This week’s Athlete of the Week embodies what it means to be humble in victory. You will never hear him brag about having won all four of the swimming races he competed in last Friday at the ETIAC meet held at Université de Sherbrooke.
Nor will he boast about the fact that in the 100-metre breast stroke (a race that took him only 1 minute and 26 seconds to complete) he finished ahead of the second place swimmer by an unheard of 14 seconds. In fact, when asked about his victories, Keita would only respond with a small smile and a “Well, that’s nice.”
Although he is not willing to brag about his success, his coaches are more than happy to do so for him. Congratulations, Keita – you have definitely earned this week’s Athlete of the Week!
