Alex Hartmann is a Sprinter whose been competing internationally for Australia since 2012.
Although he was the reserve for the 4x100m relay at his first few international competitions, that quickly changed and he's since become a staple of the Australia men's 4x100 team.
Through gaining experience and international confidence, Hartmann has since gone on to represent Australia in the 200m sprint at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games and 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
It hasn't exactly been smooth sailing for Hartmann, however. From being told he should give up on his dream and get a real job by his teachers, to being hospitalized by a mystery illness only weeks before the Rio Olympics, he's faced it all.
One thing has stayed consistent though, and that's his unwavering desire to continue to push himself to become the best and inspire those around him to do the same.
"I want people to see that they're dreams are reachable. That it just takes a little effort, day in, day out and the results will come. There's nothing special about me. If I can do it, anyone can."
