A nutritionist

People chomping their food. I can’t stand that.

I don't usually go to the movies because I am always watching “Gossip Girl” on Netflix, but “Frozen” was the last best one I've seen.

Cameron Iftner. He works as hard as he can, but there are times when he gets down and we pick him up. He makes the team fun.

5. What’s the toughest event in track and field?

The 4x400 relay, by far. You have to give everything you have for 400 meters. I hate it at first, but I like how well it makes you feel when you finish. You get a nice burn in the legs afterward.

The 400-meter dash. It's hard to push yourself to go fast for 400 meters.
