Yarham sees US path to improvement
IPSWICH athlete Glen Yarham returns to the United States on Monday to continue studying an economics and business degree at Florida State University.
He transferred to Florida university in August last year, having studied education and exercise science previously in Brisbane.
While keen to further his education is important, Yarham said competing in the US College system also offered better quality racing and opportunities.
"I went over there 12 months ago to race against more stronger runners, also for the support that's provided,'' he said.
"It's a really strong support network over there.''
Yarham, 22, needed that after some early injury issues before getting back on track in recent weeks.
"Hopefully I go back there this year and do a few things a bit different and it pays off,'' he said.
