Passion for Running (Dominic Artis)

Bookmark and Share

Dominic Artis has been impressing people on the track for the past five years. He found a love for running and has run with it. The fifth year senior saw an opportunity at the University of South Dakota to be a breakout athlete and his final track meet proved it as he set a personal best in the 200 meter.


Dominic Artis says, "You train for PR, to get your fastest time and I definitely got that today."


Artis doesn’t only compete in the 200, but he finished third in this 100-meter dash and is the anchor for the "U’s" 4x100 team. He's an all-around athlete that really caught the eye of his coach.


Coach David Gottsleben says, "Unbelievable. This kid has been through a lot and came from New Jersey to Minneapolis. Got hurt a few years ago, battled through the injury coming back, would like to continue with his 200. 21.03 are pretty good having a little bit of work to do. That's a great start for Dominic. There's no other greater kid we've had."


This athlete also has high aspirations when it comes to his 200 time. His 21.03 is just off the pace to qualify for the national team.


Artis says, "There is no limit when you’re in the zone. It is about time to drop my time, 20.05 is where I need to be."


Even though this recent grad wants to become a police officer, he and his coach will continue to make Dominic the best sprinter he can be.


Artis says, "It is all mental and you have to be mentally strong."

Gottsleben says, "It's something he can do continue to run and train. He'll never leave my heart I’ll tell you that. Great kid.”

Whether it's being a cop or a star on the track, Artis has a bright future, and it's one he can be very proud of.
