This kid’s got potential… and lots of it.
Hands down the smallest of our competitive athletes, Niko makes up for it in heart. And if you haven’t noticed by now, a recurring theme among the athletes that are recognized each month is the ever important quality of being coachable. Niko is that and then some. He is always looking for ways to get better and to improve himself. He takes feedback with humility and he is constantly pushing to be the best he can.
In case you weren’t there to witness it, here’s some amazing footage of Niko during a tie breaker event against a guy at least 50-60lbs heavier than him. To label that as “impressive” would be a gross understatement.
