An Olympian's Workout 6

Featuring Norris Fredrick

This name might sound familiar to you. However, if it doesn’t, it should. Norris Fredrick is our local professional track and field athlete as well as an Olympian. To add to his resume of accomplishments he is also a three-time indoor bronze medalist for Team USA. He is the epitome of modern-day success and an all-around powerhouse of a man. From Roosevelt High School to earning his bachelor’s and MBA from the University of Washington, Norris is also a leader in our community. You may see his name on videography, notice his face on campaigns or already be following him on his lucrative social media channels.
