Building Teams and Confidences | HepsTrack.com

Building Teams and ConfidencesTrack and field often heralds the individual superstar who sets records every time they enter the athletics facility.  We do that – it is exciting news to cover and share.  But our sport is more than just those superstars.  There is a team aspect to our sport that goes beyond teaming up with three others for a relay.  Unfortunately, this is often dropped out of focus once the conference meets are done in early May every year, as it is the superfast or superstrong who advance to further competitions.A team is made up of many athletes of various talents and interests.  All of these athletes are expected to contribute when it is their turn.   And they do, whether it be as the sole representative out in the throwing fields or multi-event series, or the non-anchor leg of a relay team.  They rise up and help out the team as called.  They may not always get the accolades they deserve while in college, but these athletes are typically the ones who come back to the sport and find a new way to serve within it.Gaby Grebski is such an athlete.Gabriela “Gaby” Grebski (Y’ 93) competed for the Bulldogs as a mid-distance runner who happened to do cross country in the fall months.  She was strongest as an 800m runner, where her personal highlight was winning the 800m in the Harvard-Yale/Oxford-Cambridge dual in 1991 in 2:15.7 (Harvard-Yale won, 117.5 to 79.5).  Although she struggled with injuries during her college career, she was a key member for both the 4×400 and 4×800 relay teams, and a top-5 scorer on the cross country team.  The inset image above shows Gaby competing her relay leg in the 1992 Yale Invitational.Nowadays, Gaby has found success both in and around the sport Continue reading

What Margaret Thatcher Meant to Me

As an American child born in 1978, I recognize that I was not personally impacted by the “Iron Lady’s” apparently cold personality and extremely conservative views and agenda. I cannot identify with the vindication presently experienced by the “Battle of Orgreave” miners, a group who appear to have ample reason to wish ill upon Thatcher’s soul.

But if someone asked me what my favourite stroke was I’d say Maggie Thatcher’s,” I understand that I haven’t walked a mile in their shoes. Continue reading
