"Talent isn’t everything. The most important aspect of any competition is working hard and that’s what Kamran does best. Watching Kamran mature into something special within athletics is due to his hard work outside of his daily routine. Despite being his older counterpart I am someone who looks up to him because he is a great role model and has great character."
