Catching Up With Carmel’s Rajeev Ram
Where does the Carmel athlete keep his Olympic medal?
“I know that with the past two Olympic Games that I’ve been in, there’s always been some sort of hype coming into the games as far as security or environmental issues or political issues. This one’s no different. Every games that I’ve been to have been absolutely amazing. I don’t think Rio will disappoint.”
“I really want people to know how my story started and the values and hard work that I embody,” he says. “A lot of my friends are from these amazing mountain towns. I want people to know that where I come from, it’s different. I hope it says something about my character.”
