Mohammed Ahmed's brilliant track and field career drawing to a close


"Ninety to 100 miles a week for five years. That’s a lot."

That's Wisconsin track and field star Mohammed Ahmed in a wonderful feature from the State Journal's Andy Baggot profiling one of UW's most storied runners. A Somali native, Ahmed overcame early classroom struggles and his quiet nature to become a strong team leader and reach numerous milestones along the way. The senior begins the NCAA Outdoor Championships today.
