I moved from Peterborough in 2013 to attend The Academy of Art in San Francisco in California to become and student athlete, I am a sprinter and study photography. I can honestly it say coming out here has been the best decision of my life so far. From training in the cold, wet miserable UK weather to the climate I now enjoy in California is night and day. The training, competition and facilities are magnificent and are so professional compared to what I experienced back home.
I would advise any athlete to investigate the opportunity with united sports usa because it really has been life changing for me.
