Florida State freshman phenom Gonzalo Barroilhet recently talked to one of the leading track publications about winning the NCAA Indoor Heptathlon title, his training regime, his experience in Tallahassee and much more.
How has your training been since your 7,828 tally at the Texas Relays back in April?
Basically, I’ve trying to keep a high volume of practice and at the same time, I’m doing a lot of technical workouts for every event. Also, I’m very focus in throws in general, hurdles, speed and pole vault.
As just a freshman, how has the adjustment been for you at Florida State as an international student-athlete from Chile?
It’s been great; I haven’t had a problem at all. We have a large variety of athletes from all around the world, so this makes the process of adaptation easier. Also, the coaching staff supports me and the entire athletic department makes it easier to combine studies and athletics. I’m very happy to be here and the important thing is that I’m enjoying it.
