As the 2012 Olympics in London steadily approaches, Soliant’s Olympian, Keith Moffat, updates us on his progress:
It’s less than a 100 days to the London Olympics, has your training or motivation changed now that we’re getting close so close?
Yes my training has changed and I am more motivated. My workouts are more intense. I always make sure I do everything in my workout and a little more. I do not want to look back and feel like I did not do everything possible to make this Olympic team. I may even cut my hours so that I can take my training up a notch.
What’s been going on for work? We heard you shot an internal video for Soliant – can you tell us about that?
Work has been both busy and fun at the same time. I was asked by Ron Washburn [Soliant’s Vice President of Nursing Operations] if I had any acting skills. I told him that, in fact, I had very little! He said that he could use me in Soliant’s next training video anyway.
Two other colleagues and I acted demonstrated a scene about handling client phone calls. I really didn’t have much time to memorize the lines, so I just read them as we filmed. It was a fun video. Everyone loved when I jumped on top of the desk and started dancing. I hope to shoot another one in the future.
What’s coming up next for you? I know you have a bunch of meets coming up…can you tell us about them or what you are doing to get ready for them?
Next up I have a meet in Des Moines, Iowa. This meet is called Drake Relays. I leave this Friday [April 27th] to compete. From Des Moines, I will fly straight to Guadeloupe for another competition on the 1st of May. From Guadeloupe I was supposed to fly to Jamaica, but my agent is sending me to Doha, Qatar.
This will be the longest flight ever. I’m not looking forward to 14 hours on a plane.
Anything else you want to share?
My knee is really starting to bother me lately. I have patella tendinitis and it is having a bad effect on my performance. Hopefully I can have it better by the trials
Keep pushing, Keith! Your Soliant team is rooting for you!
