Behind the scenes with Cassandra Blau

What is your favorite sports movie?: I loved “Race” a lot because of the training involved in it.

What is your favorite song?: “Old Pine” by Ben Howard.

What do you like to eat before a meet?: I eat a salad usually during a meet, and after the 4x4, I don’t feel like eating much, that’s for sure.

What is your favorite local restaurant?: I like to go to Ken & Sue’s Restaurant with my parents for celebrations.

What was your favorite childhood book?: I probably read “The Giver” by Louis Lowry at least four times as a kid.

If you could have any superpower, what would you pick and why?: Super speed, obviously.

What is your favorite local outdoor activity?: I like to ski up at Purgatory.

Who is your favorite professional athlete?: Allyson Felix. Her performance at the London Olympics in 2012 was unbelievable.

If you could take a trip anywhere in the world, where would you go?: I’d want to visit Peru because it’s somewhere different, plus the hiking looks awesome.

What teacher has had the biggest impact on you?: Mr. Eric Jackson, my anatomy teacher. I want to go into the health field; it’s been cool to learn all of the anatomy and physiology.

Do you have a role model?: My mom. She always pushes me to reach for my aspirations and is so caring and supportive.
